Output file to specific directory?

Unfortunately, that doesn't work.  It still decrypts the file to the
directory the original is located in rather than the current working
directory.  Seems strange to me, but I guess that's the way it's
designed.  Is this by design or is that a bug?

I might be wrong, but how about doing something like:

  Find the current directory.
  Find absolute path of file.
  Cd to output directory.
  Invoke gpg command on file with absolute path.
  Cd to previous directory.

Would that work?
