This is a lot of change to push into a stable point release, so i'm not
sure that it'll happen.  The first step would be to make sure that it's
all resolved in unstable, and then we can look into what parts are
possible for stable.

This is done in debian unstable, with pinentry 0.9.3.  yay!

I'm not sure exactly which change to gpg this is intended to be.  do you
have a suggestion?

Maybe we need to offer them a patch.  the goal here is just to disable
gnome-keyring's gpg-agent proxy implementation by default, right?
