Signing the symmetrical encrypted data

This topic has been brought up few days ago in GnuPG New Japan group.
In PGP, there is an option that allows signing symmetrically encrypted
data, which you can decrypt using symmetrical password then sign is
GnuPG can correctly decrypt and verify such files, but making one
requires quite messy technique.
For example, one would do:
gpg -su [Signer's ID] -o tempfile foo.txt
gpg -a --symmetric --no-literal -o result.txt tempfile
(Some reason, first command must be set to output binary to this to
work, not armor texts)
gpg -o file -su [Signer's ID] foo.txt
causes conflicting command.
Is there any exisiting way of doing this in one command line? I
think this would be quite useful feature.
