step 1: keep your own copy of the password-store safe, in an encrypted
file system.

step 2: if you need to export your repository or share it with others,
use something like https://github.com/joeyh/git-remote-gcrypt (I have
not tested it myself, but it looks like a reasonably simple and safe way
to handle the problem.)

(I do not think the filenames I choose are sufficiently security
sensitive to mandate step 2.)
