I did a quick test:

  $ fortune | gpg --no-options --homedir=$(pwd) --no-default-keyring \
    --keyring ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg --secret-keyring /dev/null \
    --no-random-seed-file --always-trust -eavr wk at

If used in an empty directory it only creates one file: trustdb.gpg.  I
thinkl it is pissible to do something about that.  The hack with using
/dev/null for the secret keyring would only fail if gpg actually needs
to access the secret keys because then it won't be able to lock



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
