quintuple-agent simply echoes the passphrase onto fd0, to be picked up
by another program through a piper.

  qagent get gpg | cat

or so reveals your passphrase on stdout. bad.

from what i understood. gpg-agent hooks into gpg like ssh-agent into
ssh and you can't get at the passphrase. correct me if this is wrong.
