I agree with this argument - one of our principles is to mess as little
as possible with upstream packages. In this case, since there is a special
configuration option for gnupg-2, we may use it, but then we would have
to pay the price that both gnupg-1 (or gnupg-2.0) and gnupg-2.1 could not
be installed together any more. Maybe it would then be consistent to drop
gnupg-2.0 from the distribution.

Finally I managed to make gnupg-2.1 work together with mutt, but it was
not completely straightforward... So we should document the change if we
make it.

By the way, should we maybe make pinentry a propagated input of gnupg-2.1?
If I understand correctly, gnupg-2.1 will not work without it (and mixing
pinentry from Debian with gnupg-2.1 from Guix was one of the reasons for
gnupg not working at first).
