I don't intend to ask users to do that.  I showed it so that I can
demonstrate: how the feature is accessible with a patch now.

The reason why one is %-escaped and another is not is: while SETDATA
command takes a hexstring as an argument, SETATTR command takes
simple string.

I'm not sure if people use the feature with GnuPG, and I have no idea
how it will be by gpg frontend (if people want to use it).

I understand the feature would be useful for some cases, but, I've not
yet decided if I will incorporate the feature in Gnuk.  For me, shared
secret is difficult to manage.
