I just tried it with 1.6.2 from my $HOME, and it worked correctly...

No, my bad, I didn't realize the diff would be binary. Stupid me :( One
thing that could be done is a git alias that takes the commits one by
one and decrypts them. Since pass doesn't require git, I doubt that a
pass command that is usable only when git is used would be accepted as a
stanard pass command.
