Well some of the services are directly integrated. So you have to same 
account, whether you like it or not. Example: twitter.com and tweetdeck.com

In-file metadata isn't going to work, unless it can be tab-completed 
against, which I doubt it can, right? Tab-completion is the holy grail 
of cli pass management, at least for me. :)
