Another possibility (which still requires to spawn a new process) would
be the --use-standard-socket-p option.
If "gpg-agent --use-standard-socket-p" returns 0, then you know you can
use the agent even if there is no GPG_AGENT_INFO in the environment.
This should work with both GnuPG 2.0 and GnuPG 2.1.
