I think the current stance is that the backing format of the repository
is well defined and simple, so there is little value gained from
re-implementing all the unix tools through the pass frontend. The pass
tool was designed to be used by humans and if you want to script
access/management/whatever of the password store just ignore the
frontend and access the underlying directory directly.

I'm not saying that it is the best stance (very little abstraction) but
I think it's fairly reasonable given the simplicity of the problem and

TL;DR We don't need `pass ls --raw` because we have `ls -1`

Cheers, Kevin
