* Write a replacement for gpg-agent that loops back to your application. ;-)

* Let your daemon ask for the passphrase and use the gpg-agent protocol
  (or gpg-preset-passphrase) to tell gpg-agent about the passphrase.  Do

* Use gpg 1.4 and remove use-agent from gpg.conf.  gpgme has a fucntion
  to setup the engine to use.
