In general you don't want packages built this way on a stable (production)
system. Even with trivial software, some hand-tweaking is always needed.

The new GPG will appear in unstable when James Troup (GPG package
maintainer) will update it. Then, to obtain sarge package download the
source package and dpkg-buildpackage it.

The kosher and kind way to notify James that new gpg is important, file a
severity=wishlist bug agains gnupg with text that you miss gnupg so much in
unstable :-).
