Not tomorrow, but it will be just a month later.  Also note that this is
a relatively new package and no Emacs release has shipped with it.

Sorry, I have no idea what to add to the existing documentation (the
Commentary section), really.  As I indicated in the previous post, if
pinentry.el doesn't work, it is likely to be failing in somewhere else
than Emacs (e.g. Debian packaging of GnuPG and pinentry).  It's not
obvious to me what we should suggest to the user in that case.
