I finally broke down and searched around in the source.  Not only
is there a --status-fd flag, there is a --logger-fd flag.  I
don't know what the difference between emitting a status message
and writing a log message is, but setting both values to 4 now
puts all the GnuPG chattiness in my log file where I want it.
