Now I feel stupid. The moment I give up, I find my answer. Seems to
always work this way. Thanks to Paul Evad (May 2000) from the archives,
slightly altered. I must've typo'd the first time I tried this because now
it's working. :)
$command="echo '$passphrase\n$msg' | gpg --clearsign --passphrase-fd 0"
