How do I use it?

I've tried

$ gpg --list-keys B565716F --photo-viewer 'cat>foo' --show-photos
$ gpg --list-keys B565716F --photo-viewer 'echo %I' --show-photos

but it still forked the default photo viewer and didn't do anything
else.  I don't have any photo-viewer in my options file.

Yes.  Ideally I'd like my mail reader to show the JPEG alongside the
GPG result (which is why I want 1), but it probably requires some code
in the mailreader, so it would be nice if GPG started the photo viewer
whenever I verify some data from my mail reader.
