Perhaps instead a command to print pass variables.
For example I have needed `PASSWORD_STORE_CLIP_TIME` myself (and had to
hardcode the current default value of 45).
And in general, I would drop the `script-interface` command. I
understand that it is to emphasize that the output is stable, but I
think for these simple things, the expectation would be stable output.

I suggest instead adding `[--list,-l]` and `[--dirs,-d]` to the `pass

Why not use this code for the `dirs` command?

What is the use-case for this?
