  emacsclient --eval '(read-passwd "gpg passwd: ")'

This looks like a very clean solution.  Except that you have to make sure
that Emacs is running a server, and if the user is running several Emacsen at
the same time you may not be able to get to that server.


PS: Also in case gpg is run on a different machine than Emacs, you may bump
into difficulties, although maybe this is sufficiently unlikely/impossible.
