It is at least really useful to me :-)  I'm calling gpg outside of Emacs
a lot.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but setting epa-pinentry-mode to 'loopback
won't have any effect if I evaluate:

  (shell-command-to-string "echo 'foo' | gpg -s")

That'd be a shame IMO, I use pinentry-emacs daily.

Is the ELPA version the same as the one in Emacs?
