I am not convinced that this is the best idea -- so far as I can see, if
I were to set `pgg-gpg-use-agent' to `t' then I *must* use the agent.

Is it not possible to enable gpg to try the agent first, then to prompt
for a passphrase?

Also, is it possible to automatically detect support for using the agent
so that it isn't necessary to manually enable this -- once a new enough
version is available, support is enabled?

Obviously, automatically enabling this is only useful if the first issue
is resolved. :)
