...which is a *really* nice feature, e.g. if you want to decrypt a bunch  
of files! However, the output when using gpg is really sparse: for me,  
pinentry-gtk just says "Passphrase" and nothing more (in contrast to  
gpgsm, where I get some information abut what is needed and why). Isn't it  
possible to make output with gpg somewhat more meaningful == user- 

Cheers, Albrecht.
