I'm not objecting to the idea of GKD providing its own pinentry:
creating a gkd-pinentry sounds like a good idea.
I'm objecting to what I read (and possibly misread) as placing GKD hooks
into the *GnuPG-distributed* pinentry.
I would suggest that in the future we talk about "pinentry" only for
GnuPG's pinentry, and "foo-pinentry" to denote a pinentry provided by
foo, so as to prevent future misunderstandings. :)
