(I realize that your suggestion is quite reasonable given how MESSAGE is used now, and that there is a real docuemntation problem. My comments are really about MESSAGE in general.) Another thing about MESSAGE and documentation is that MESSAGE is intended for the person installing a package, which is the sysadmin of a computer, not a user. I realize it's often the same person. But if one person installs gnupg and several use it, that situation points out why MESSAGE isn't the right place for user-facing documentation. In this case, I wonder why pinentry-program doesn't have a default value, and why the gpg2(1) man page doesn't explain. I did find in the info file that the default is installation dependent. I'd be happy to review and probably apply a patch to fix the default.
