Use PASSWORD_STORE_DIR environment variable if it is set.
A user made this request: I was wondering whether it is in a planning to have multiple password-store directory trees or possible to achieve? eg. $HOME/.pwd-store-work and $HOME/.pwd-store-home. Maybe distinguish them with a command line switch and then create aliases in .bash_aliases? Why I'm asking is that I have multiple major password categories - personal, work etc. It'll be nice to keep them separate and under different repos.
