I think the user's personal setup shouldn't affect the tests.

The solution can be either automatic (auth-source knows it's inside a
test, or EPG doesn't try to decrypt in a test environment) or explicit
(tests override `auth-sources' and/or EPG). For the automatic
option, I can add the code to auth-source if anyone can suggest how to
tell it's inside a test environment.

Maybe others can think of other options?
