I agree. We could do this. If a file "gnupg-enable-standalone" exists
in the same directory as the gpg binary, we set the GNUPGHOME directory to
a subdirectory (e.g. "home") and all other directories also to a
subdirectory (iirc, we only need an "etc").
On a USB stick this might look like this
/ # Binaries etc.
+ home/ # pubring, trustdb etc. (This is NEW).
| + private-keys-v1.d/ # Secret X.509 keys
| # and (for v2.1) secret OpenPGP keys
+ pub/ # Stuff you may put into your PATH
+ etc/ # Dirmngr configuration
+ lib/ # Stuff required by GnuPG etc.
If the file "gnupg-enable-standalone" is not in the root directory,
everything behaves as before.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
