Anyone working on gpg-agent have comments about this? I could write a
patch if whoever is maintaining gpg-agent is willing to include it. I
need this feature for my app which doesn't use a key grip. I'd rather
use gpg-agent and not my own pinentry method because it's well tested
and probably more secure.
