[pass] [PATCH] Fuzzy lookup for "show" command

Hi Guys

I really like pass, but a feature that I'm missing is to quickly fetch a
password if I have a nested structure. For example, I have my passwords
sorted into a lot of subfolders. Now usually the password file's name is
still unique, but nested somewhere deep.

So I've hacked up an extension for the "show" command that allows
searching for a password file within the tree structure. The attached
patch allows for matching anywhere inside the path to the file using Awk.

Please have a look and let me know what you think. Note that I'm not
really a shell dev, so this may still be quite buggy..
