thanks for the pointer. Is there a way to override this systemd
setting as user? As least systemd starts something for a users and this user
may want to have this changed.
Otherwise someone who wants to run a different GnuPG will have to build their
own packages and patch them to use a different socket under user control.
(This would be the solution for packages like Phil's I guess.)

'--agent-program FILE' is not honored anymore (which stands in contrast to the
documentation in info gnupg).
