In the Android app, gpg-agent and dirmngr are both started in their own
threads. They often stay alive when the app itself quits. gpg-agent seems to
automatically find whether its running and refuse to start a second one,
that's good. But dirmngr does not seem to do that, so after starting and
stopping the app, there will be multiple dirmngrs running.
I can write code to kill old ones or detect if one is running before starting
another, but I wanted to check first to make sure that there isn't already a
way to do that.
