Sorry, I don't want to extend `epa-file-encrypt-to' to a global variable
to accept the value such as 'ask.  It purely intends to be used in
"Local variables:" section of the file.

Perhaps you may think my previous patch is too large (and as you usually
complains there is a code duplication between netrc.el and
auth-source.el)?  I don't think so since there is only a few packages
(auth-source.el and anything else?) will benefit from the simplicity.

Personally I don't like this kind of multiple-candidate question in the
mini-buffer :-) Maybe we could reuse the prefix argument (as `C-u M-x
epa-sign-region') to control whether the key selection UI is shown, or
simplify the key selection dialog by hiding the public key list by
default, with say `visibility' widget.
