I'm writing a suite of scripts and a little frame work for the use
cryptsetup/dm-crypt within an initrd for Debian
This also includes a keyscript to decrypt (symmetrically) OpenPGP
encrypted dm-crypt keys.

I'm suggesting that such keys have the for-your-eyes flag set (because
it shouldn't be necessary to write them to disk).

gpg seems to always write that warning message (that the message is for
your eyes only) even when writing to stdout (where stdout is a console)
or when piping to a file.
Switches like --quiet or so doesn't change this.

Is it already possible to somehow suppress this message (without
suppressing others like no-MDC or so)? If not would you consider to add
a simple option?
