I fully agree with you. I did not mean to suggest defaulting to this
option. I merely mentioned no-autostart since it might be useful for
developers testing the gnupg2 package with session-managed daemons.

In this case one wishes to know with certainty whether the daemons were
started by the session manager as intended, or auto-spawned by accident.

Adding to Stefano, thank you very much for completing this transition.
