Since allout exploits the use of PGG's passphrase handling functions to
provide a custom passphrase handling, it's not a bug in PGG or gpg-agent,
I think.

Ken, is it hard to make allout skip its own passphrase handling if
pgg-gpg-use-agent is t, as PGG does?  I know it disables passphrase
caching for symmetric encryption, but it seems a practical solution for
the release.
