I have a small and, quite weird I must assume feature request.
On some occassions GnuPG is truncating its output to 73 columns, like in
following output of edit-key -> check:

sig!3 DEB0EC31 2002-10-22 Krzysztof Krzy\xc2\xbfaniak (eloy) <eloy
The problem is that people these days usually use much wider TTYs than 80
columns. Back from days of glass TTYs, those usually had at least two display
settings: 80 and 132 columns. Apps were informed of the settings by COLUMNS
This would be nice if gpg react to this variable and treat its output
