I think there's a downside to that (but I could always be
wrong).  Redirecting stderr to stdout would prevent mutt (or
whatever tool was using being used) from being be able to
display output only from stderr.  That is helpful when the
exit status is 0 but there were warnings, as in this case.

Indeed, if Werner weren't so quick, perhaps I would have
considered some sort of adjustment.  Though I try to use the
mutt's contrib/gpg.rc unaltered so I don't have to remember
to merge in fixes they make there.

This does remind me that I should re-evaluate using  gpgme
as the backend.  I don't recall why I disabled that now.  It
may have been for an issue which is long-since resolved. ;)
