You can already configure this using the flag --no-symbols in pass
generate or the variable PASSWORD_STORE_CHARACTER_SET if you need a
special character set (see man pass).

Its already exist... but it is still in a work in progress stage:

- The extension pass update has a dev branch that proposes to implement
this feature [1].

- pass-rotate [2] is a python library that focus on the automatic
rotation of password. It is not password manager related, this is why, a
pass extension like pass update is still needed in order to integrate
pass-rotate with pass.

Both project are still under development and are notor usable at this
stage. PR are welcome...
