Since it still works as described for GnuPG 1.x, please fix the
variable's docstring to mention that it doesn't work with 2.x.  You
could also add a reference to the manual page as shown above, and in the
manual you could synchronize the variable description with the
docstring, also adding the xref:

@defvar epa-file-cache-passphrase-for-symmetric-encryption
If address@hidden, cache passphrase for symmetric encryption.  The
default value is @code{nil}.
@end defvar

Right now, you have to read the whole manual or search for the variable
name specifically to find that table.  It's not a big manual but it's
still nice to the user.

Thanks
Ted
