It definititely is a nice feature. However, for gpg-agent it is not
required. gpg-agent shall only be started by the GnuPG tools. If you
need to start it advance (e.g. for ssh support) run
gpgconf --launch gpg-agent
no need to mess around with init systems.

You need to run it last of course ;-)
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
