   I'd say most of the pain is down to pinentry.

gpg2 is unusable without working pinentry, so that's a bit of a moot

I'm also not convinced the way gpg-agent works inside makes any sense
at all, even if bugs in pinentry-curses in particular were fixed, but
it's been long enough since I looked into this that I won't go
blabbing further about it.
