[pass] [PATCH] Add support for displaying QR codes.

Adding to what Jonas suggested, instead of piping the password to
qrencode, you could pipe it to a small script that would do

qrencode -o - | display -

Alternatively, have a separate program/script assigned to a key
combination that displays a qr code of your current clipboard, like this:

xclip -o -selection clipboard | qrencode -o - | display -

Maybe the above is useful in general, because any information on your
monitors is 1 or 2 buttons away from a qrcode, and pass doesn't need to
know about it.
