I agree with both.
Just I dont take time to put into pass itself.
So as the excellent design of pass permit it, I hacked directly to  the
~/.password-store ! ;-)

I shared my code as is here: https://github.com/Sylvain303/find_pass

I manage both fullpath and pass argument, it seems that all idea here
could merge into something really cool.
Also it may be time to think about signed plugin as mentioned here:

[pass] Extending pass with user-defined hooks / add ons

Hope that helps…
