I did the passphrase callback has a temporary hack to until we can use
the gpg-agent.  It later turned out that it will be needed for
symmetric-only encryption, but in that case a user ID is not required.
It does only make sense to use this callabck in an automated
environment, so the only thing which is required is a caller supplied
pointer to be passed transparently to the callback.
