No.  Private keys will be be managed by gpg-agent.  gpg2 will then ask
gpg-agent whether a private key for a given public key is available for
use.  This also includes smart card keys and such.  The whole secret-key
stub stuff we currently use with gpg2 will just go away as it will be
gpg-agent's business to decide whether a private (sub)key is available.
