Just as a side note, it's the folder that gets moved in this ambiguous
$ pass mv test-159 test-move
I'm not sure if we want to dis-allow creation of passwords and folders
that bare the same name.
What's next? stopping people from doing things like
$ pass insert git
$ pass git
to retrieve their git password? (the correct syntax would be: pass show
The delete function is the only bit that actually needs fixing.
