mml2015-always-trust is replaced by mml-secure-openpgp-always-trust
nowadays.  I certainly wouldn’t object if the default value was
changed, but lots of long-term users might be surprised.

Also, nowadays, if multiple keys are available for a recipient, the
user is asked which key to use and whether to store that choice.

Then, EasyPG is responsible for calling GnuPG.  Maybe something
needs to be adjusted there as well.  What is the expected command
line behavior?

Best wishes
Jens
