Nice package. I've tried it with my own ~/.authinfo.gpg file;
unfortunately it doesn't work out of the box due to limitations in
`password-mode-prefix-regex':

- You require a trailing ":" after any string of
  `password-mode-words'. Maybe you could make this optional.

- You allow only alpha numerical characters for passwords. I use also
  special characters like "@" in my passwords, which are not hidden. The
  password regexp could be more general (or customizable).
