The workaround I use in my dotfiles[0] is simply letting weechat have
it's fancy secure storage and providing the passphrase via pass:

$ WEECHAT_PASSPHRASE="$(pass personal/weechat)" weechat

Then turn the salt off in sec.conf:

salt = off

so weechat doesn't re-salt everything all the time.

It's not pretty, but works very well.
