    As Greg suggested, the passphrase handling should be moved from Emacs
    into a separate process (which may request special privileges to lock
    memory regions etc.).

I agree it is a good solution.

We would still face the issue of how users who never exit Emacs
can provide the passphrase to gpg-agent thru the shell buffer
without its being saved on disk.
