non-ASCII armor headers

GnuPG has a localized default "Comment" ASCII armor header, which is
not restricted to us-ascii in certain locales.
This behaviour breaks PGP/MIME, and is generally incompatible with
the expectation that ASCII armor is restricted to ASCII.
I'd suggest (1) to restrict the default value of that header to
something which is us-ascii independent of the user's locale, (2) to
make sure that this header isn't set to something non-ascii by
users, and (3) to make it possible to easily disable that header.
