Hmm, are these options (keyserver etc.) also settable in the user section?
Like an overide, then the charset option would be overridable by a user
not from the same country the machine is in.

Btw. why would you think a multiuser machine will not have gpg running.
Somethink to do with 'I don't know who root is, can I trust him?' like
