I suggest a minimal handler so that epg wouldn't wait GET_LINE input in
tofu conflicts (which currently doesn't work anyway) and
epg-signature-to-string function would return a string like this:

    Good signature from [keyid] [user id] (tofu conflict) created at
    [date] using [algorithm]

I believe epg is mostly used with Gnus and that line alone is useful.
