I'm not inclined to ship the new GNOME3 pinentry if it's not part of a
released version of pinentry.  I could do so with a beta release
(e.g. in debian experimental), or i could invent a release of my own
From git HEAD, but i'm wary about doing this unless you tell me as
upstream that pinentry is in a good stopping place.

(also, the common gnupg practice of shipping tarballs that differ
significantly from the revision control system makes it more complicated
for me to "cut a release" on my own as a distributor, since the release
i cut is likely to be different from whatever you produce as upstream)

I'd be happy to try to get something like pinentry-gnome3 into debian if
it's ready, though.  Is it ready?
