No, I don't day this. Existing applications behave this way - they all
have there preference and some try to auto-configure them. This is why
we developed gpgconf - a way to unify changes. This is similar to other
parts of the desktop: For example there are several ways to configure
the keyboard, the properties of the screen, or the network.

I view it the other way: The standard socket allows operations which are
not necessary for every days use. The --extra-socket allows the
commonly required operations. "restricted" is the wrong term. I would
love to use "remote" but that would be a silly name for a local socket.
After all, I only want to have a shorter name than what you proposed.

Because that word as weel as 'extra" has a positive connotation -
meaning it is an actual useful thing. Who wants to use something
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
