Unless alpine is configured with a default passfile, it does not even offer the option to use one. There are some security concerns to consider[0], and I would understand if they were reason enough to not enable the alpine passfile. But I don't want to keep typing several complicated passwords every time I check my email from a VT, and I don't think I'm the only one. Since this was not found in the archive, I figured it would be worth sending a bug report.

On a side note, alpine 2.23 is released, and guix is still configured for 2.22. Strangely enough, the package uses the same commit the release tag points to.
