Install GnuPG 1.4 alongside 2.1 and manually sync all keys from GnuPG
2.1 to 1.4, with for instance:

$ gpg2 --export | gpg --import

I'm not sure how large the overhead is when you sync all keys everytime
you get a new key... GnuPG will figure out that it already has the keys,
but it will inspect all signatures to see if it already has them and
stuff like that, so it might have quite some overhead that way. The
obvious alternative is to import with both GnuPG versions every time you
import a new key.
