Yeah, but it would be nice not to script it :-)

To create password foo/bar with metadata, I frequently find myself doing 
"pass edit foo/bar" in one window, and "dd if=/dev/urandom bs=1 count=12 
| base64" in another, then pasting that in.

An option which combines "pass generate" with "pass edit" would be great.

Currently, "pass edit" works with new or exisiting files, but doesn't 
generate a password. "pass generate" by itself generates the password, 
but doesn't open the editor to allow you to add metadata.
