Using --output with --verify

it has been reported that --output has no effect if --verify is used to
verify signed data.  This is also what the man page says.  However, in
particular for binary signatures and clearsigs it is useful to get hold
of the actual signed data.

Thus I slightly changed the semantics of --verify to allow the use of
--output.  For example by using "--verify --output -" the signed text
can be printed to stdout.  This change (commit bbe940c) should not
introduce problems but if it does, please tell us soon.

The next step will be to add an --output option to gpgv.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
