_but_ gpg-agent also provides ssh-agent functionality for authentication
purposes. This is the _only_ part I'm currently intrested in from gpg

windows (yes, my boss makes me use this OS).

And here we disagree... for me, basically forced to use this windows
thing as an X-terminal, gpg-agent does add a bit of functionality.
