After a second thought: charset should be both global and local - global for
system wide default setting by admin (like for example I set pl_PL locale
for all my users) but this should be overridable on per-user basis (like any
of my users can put his own locale setting in his startup files).

On third thought, GPG could first try to obtain charset from system's
locale, but this should be overridable by global config, then by user's
config, then by commandline option.
