I don't like this approach.  In particular, I don't like adding new
options / commands to the Assuan protocol.  I think it is sufficient
to have a command line option to the pinentry to do the emacs check.
Then, users who want to use this would add the following to their

  pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry --enable-emacs

(We could also add a new option called pinentry-program-options so
that users can still use the system default.)
