I see that it can make sense to have such variables.  However, we will
need to add a meta option to allow such variable substitution.  Thus if
you want to do that you would need to use something like

somepath $gnupghome/foo.bar

We have something similar in gpg-connect-agent, where variables have
been added only later and thus over there you need to use /subst.

The available variables would only be those known to GnuPG and not
arbitrary envvars.  In particular those available with "gpgconf



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
