Team pass: enable multiple keys and per directory
The .gpg-id file may now have multiple keys in it, one per line. If a .gpg-id file exists inside a subdirectory, passwords inside that directory are encrypted to that/those ids. The init command has learned a -p/--path option for writing such a sub directory .gpg-id and now can take several arguments for ids.
