Could you still elaborate on the differences? Because pass, for
instance, while being primarily aimed at storing passwords, in the end
"all it does" is encrypting text-files via GPG and storing them in git.
Whether you put actual passwords in it or private keys to ssl
certificates or what ever is entirely up to the user.

So, as I'm already using pass, what extra advantages does your tool
offer? (That's an honest question...)

Also: In what form is this related to zsh?
