No, it is not a configuration directory. All your keys and other var

It is not a system socket but a per-user socket. Anyway, we are
planning to move the socket to /run/user/<uid>/gnupg/ to keep the socket
name short enough for the socket API.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
