Hmmm, pinentry.conf - tehre is no such thing.  Pinentry started out as a
very small program to avoid all kind of complexity but over the years it
grew a lot.

For the user perspective it is a part of gpg-agent and in fact it works
closely together with gpg-agent (cf. quality bar).  Thus adding another
conf file or another tab in gpgconf based option dialogs would make even
harder for the user to see where to find a certain option.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
