I am fine with this as long as it is not enabled by default.

Yesterday I did some work on Pinentry to see how much effort it will be
to build a FLTK Pinentry for Windows.

I reached a point where I can cross-build it using static FLTK libs; it
does not yet work on my (aehmm) Vista box - needs some debugging.
Building the FLTK libs is pretty slow and FLTK needs to be stripped down
to what we actually need.  Thus I doubt that we will see an FLTK
Pinentry in the plain Windows installer in the next weeks.

I am all in favor of doing a pinentry release very soon.  GPGME will be
the next candidate.  I am still looking for a Python hacker to take
responsibility for the GPGME's Python bindings (including working on a
Windows port of them).
