Default Usecase for slotted gnupg

Gtk usually, but curses works fine, too. I haven't configured anything
special in mcabber - just:

set pgp = 1
set pgp_private_key = "MY HASH"

I use 0.10.1.

This is how I run keychain in my ~/.bashrc:

keys="id_dsa id_rsa ABCDEF12 CDF12345" # ssh and gpg priv keys

if [[ $- != *i* ]] ; then
eval `keychain --eval ${keys} --quiet --noask --quick`
# Shell is non-interactive. Be done now!

eval `keychain --eval ${keys} --quiet`
[[ $(tty) == /dev/tty[0-9] ]] && reset

So when I log into interactive shell first time (or after timeout), I'm
asked for pass phrases to unlock keys, and on non-interactive shell only
special environment vars are set.

GnuPG2 should work everywhere today, and if it doesn't work for some
app, then bug should reported for this app. (Although some crypto herd
member could take a voice here or at least confirm, what I wrote.)

Hm, I have just realised that we're not discussing it on ml, and
unnecessarily I've CC'ed it to ml, sorry.
