Some distributions work around this by having binary-specific wrappers. 
I'm thinking NixOS in particular: it's a common pattern, when looking 
under each package's `/bin/` directory, to find the original binary as 
`.binary-wrapped`, and have a shell script named `binary` instead that 
calls the real binary with modified variables, parameters and arguments.

In this context, you may want to have a script somewhere on your PATH 
(as long as it's in a directory with a higher priority than where 
default pass is) which adds your variable/argument to the real pass. If 
you're worried about having to call two bashes, I think `source`ing the 
real pass instead should work?
