The isolation serves a purpose. I think the default behavior is better
for ease of use out of the box: it's less likely to break if a user
tinkers with their personal GnuPG setup.

The defcustom you introduced is the missing piece for more
advanced users, so I think that resolves the issue for everyone. I hope
you agree.
