I see your point, and I agree this might come in handy in the situation 
that you have described.
I have added your command.

Apart of this, I am worry that these two generate commands allow the 
overwrite of a stored password.
Maybe we should consider in the future adding an option 
password-store-force or the like, default to nil,
to prevent accidental overwrites.  Patches are welcome.
