fwiw (as one of the debian developers maintaining pinentry and the gnupg
stack), i'm fine with using update-alternatives for this. By default
pinentry-gnome3 if present will be a higher priority in pinentry-gtk2.
so in debian, i think we could handle this by having the gnome-keyring
package Depend: pinentry-gnome3, and leave it at that.
Now you have three different responses to choose from, none of which
require you to do anything in GNOME directly afaict :)
* pinentry-wrapper (Andreas)
* gpgconf (Werner)
* /etc/alternatives (dkg)
