That is an interesting idea as one would think that the environment
variables would be respected by default rather than opting in.

honor-http-proxy did not work, but --http-proxy host[:port] did. Thank you
for pointing me to this direction.

This makes me think that dirmngr does not understand the environment
variable by default, given that it does not work "by default" and when I
try to reinforce this with honor-http-proxy. Is this information lost when
gpg launches dirmngr? If so, should it not be retained?

Is there a command line option for gpg, like for sudo (-E) and similar
software applications, to pass on all the environment variables properly if
this is the issue?

gpg is also used in my docker build process, so the best would be to
respect the environment variable by default. Are there any objections to
that? If so, what exactly?
