Gah, that was the annoyance I was afraid of. I guess I'll just use the
--homedir option to deal with sticking it somewhere out of the way. Though
I'm still wondering if one couldn't perhaps do something with --no-options,
which 'prevents the creation of a "~./gnupg" homedir', but I'd still have
no idea how to get the key into the thing.
