Again, it appears to me that such a problem could be solved
completely differently. Why couldn't one tell auth-source (say, via
a user variable) for which cases it can find a password in
.authinfo(.gpg)? Or the other way round: a user variable telling
authinfo for which cases it should not seek a password in
.authinfo(.gpg)? Or various variations of such a solution...

I'd guess that any solution dealing with .authinfo(.gpg) even when
this file is not required is asking for trouble in one or the other
