I'm not an expert but I believe passing secrets as command line arguments
is generally discouraged as they can show up in many places such as `ps`
output and possibly in debug messages.

Also creating a human UI on top of a human UI might not be the easiest
solution in the first place. It might be easier to drop down to gpg
