Yes and no.

Yes and no. :-)
I use muttgpg (the script) for a couple of reasons:
* I get access to both mutt-pubring.gpg and pubring.gpg
(Which admittedly is just a simple change to your suggestion above)
* I can run gpg easily as mutt would run it, and do keyring
maintenance and the like.
* If I want to change how mutt interacts with GnuPG I can do it in
one place rather than editing 13(?) seperate commands in my mutt
config. This is tantamount to admitting that I don't trust myself
to make the changes correctly everywhere! :-)=20
Effectively the script makes my life easier (and it doesn't hurt the
ego to see someone else getting some benefit from it!)
