I'd like to provide a friendly reminder that if you do that, make sure to
also (securely) delete all copies of your password store encrypted with the
old key(s) as they can still be decrypted with the old key(s). This
includes old commits if you use git to version your repository, as well as
any backups you may have.

I'm not saying rotating keys is a bad idea, just that this is something you
need to keep in mind if you do.
