[Feature Request] Look for .password-store on path hierarchy

The idea is to automatically detect which store to use based on the 
current working directory. This would work just like git does to find 
the repository config, traversing the path from the current working 
directory to the root looking for a .password-store directory or 
symlink. If none found then the default location would be used.

Main motivation for this would be to include a .password-store inside a 
git repository that might contain other stuff. This would simplify the 
use case of encrypting secrets on a shared repository and make pass a 
viable alternative to git-crypt [1] or blackbox [2].
