Right, we have this comment in gpg:

      /* FIXME: Store this all in a list and process it later so that
         we can prioritize what key to use.  This gives a better user
         experience if wildcard keyids are used.  */

Curt: I would change the code to have such an option in gpg and not in
gpg-agent.  Thus the flag needs to be stored in the CTRL object which is
initialized from a new Assuan OPTION (similar to pinentry-mode).

The option name in gpg should also reflect what it is about and not how
it technically works.  Something with like --no-card-change-prompt.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
