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...

So goes me thinking depending on selenium was too much to ask :)
Well, that does make things easier. Only 3 months late to this - I love it
when code pops up in front of my ideas :P

Also, given you're using tomb, I suppose having an xattr or note for the
username may be appropriate (though I haven't really looked to see how
you're currently handling this so FWIW).

Another note - you've got an error and die function that should probably
echo >&2
