Why should a feature be added that can so easily be emulated by a simple 

test -d "$gpgdir" && rm -r "$gpgdir"
gpg --homedir "$gpgdir" --import KEYFILE
KEY_ID="$(gpg --homedir "$gpgdir" --with-colons --list-keys | 
awk -F: '$1 == "pub" {print $5;}')"
gpg --homedir "$gpgdir" --recipient "$KEY_ID" --encrypt FILE
rm -r "$gpgdir"
