You'd need to take away write-rights from the directory where gpg.conf
resides - but that also would prevent the user of filling his or her
keyring. All those files are in ~/.gnupg after all...
You could probably put up all files in different directories and tell
gnupg to use the files from certain locations.
Or chown() the gnupg.conf to some other user. Not sure if gpg will read
the file then though.
