UUID is not a bad idea. I am using the entry name for those, but that is
because the device is a parameter to my scripts. It adds some
restriction on the entry names (e.g. no subdirectories), but I am fine
with that. I am using, and would think (see `man 7 hier`), /media is
more appropriate place to mount such devices.

In general I would advice against using sudo in such scripts, but my
experience with gpg is that running the pass command itself with sudo
does not work properly. Both for security reasons and to avoid these
problem I have a separate password-store for the root user that I am
using to decrypt my devices. However, even this is not trivial use,
because gpg does not work well with logins via `su -i` or `sudo -i`, so
I have to login/ssh to the root account directly to use pass.

Yeah, I am simply using a passwords with the newline. I use this for
key files, so I am never entering these 4K files manually anyway.
