The -as-gnupg2 option got me for a moment, I forgot that this is gnupg-1.

gnupg-2.0 and gnupg-2.1 are currently individual packages which can be
installed side by side in guix?

Yes, there have been some changes, but they are documented upstream.
When this is desired for Guix, I can see if I can recall what I did
in 2015 where it went from working to broken to almost working and
now completely functional with GnuPG2.1.x

I'd be curious if it just works when I can move to GuixSD again with
libgcrypt-1.7 merged.
