We have it working since 2.0.15 and gpg2 uses it.  It would be easy to
backport it to 1.4 and use it if use-agent is used (look for

We need to use a persistent process (like the agent) to do the
calibration so that it does not take too long.  You may use
  gpg-connect-agent 'getinfo s2k_count' /bye

to see the number of iterations.
