Anybody who knows enough about computers to poison your local GPG
keyring already knows more than enough about computers to be able to
download H at ck0rT00l.exe from a website and install it on your machine.
In the scenario above, it is in fact *easier* to do this without getting
caught than it is to do it by hand - perhaps as easy as inserting a
flash drive when your computer is locked.

If you want to protect yourself against an Evil Maid (or an Evil
Coworker) then you are *way* outside the scope. Encrypt your drive, lock
your screen, disable your USB ports and store your laptop in a safe. If
you can't trust the data on your computer, you can't trust a single
thing it says.
