That's true, although pinentry-curses actually does a pretty good job
remotely unless the thing that you're calling GnuPG from is taking
extreme control of the terminal. For instance, if you're ssh'ing into
a remote system and running a simple shell script, or even doing gpg
on the command line, pinentry-curses is fine. However if you're doing
something more exotic (a mail client like Alpine for example) then all
bets are off.
