Well, I consider that to be a temporary workaround, not a permanent
solution. Like with libgnupg-interface-perl or python-gnupg.

Well, if you (build-)depend on "gnupg (<= 2.1)" and upload to
unstable, the package will no more be installable on Unstable nor
buildable on Unstable due to unsatisfiable (build-)dependencies as the
gnupg package in Unstable is already at a version >> 2.1.

So I don't see how depending on "gnupg (<= 2.1)" could be considered a
solution at all.
