I agree that the patch you've supplied is reasonable.  I've opened
#803199 to track this request within jessie, as suggested in the
developers reference:


I have created a new "jessie" branch on the pkg-gnupg gnupg git
repository, and pushed it in there.  if we get good feedback from the
release team, i'll go ahead and upload it.

thanks for the nudge, Jonathan.
