I don't have that thread in front of me, so I'll hijack this one.  We could
make it very easy to extend pass with external tools by copying git -- any
subcommand (cp, mv, find, etc) that isn't in the core is sought in the PATH
as pass-$subcommand.  So if you want a "pass find" command, just create a
script named pass-find somewhere in your $ PATH.

We can share info like the prefix by exporting to the environment. We keep
the core small, we get a consistent interface.
