Not only am I thinking about asking, I'm actually asking... and I
don't mean to go `go back to the lame and maddening ways' of PGP.
The problem with the current behavior is that it is neither documented
nor obvious. *What* does this filter do?
What I'd like to see: just `gpg' simply returns (maybe giving some
comment about using --help or something).
A filter function (of whatever kind) could be done like gzip does with

I'm not using gpg from Emacs yet... I'm doing shell stuff in an xterm,
and haven't installed mailcrypt with gpg support yet.
Probably need to write a little compctl thingie for zsh...
