I noticed after upgrading gnupg to experimental and monkeysphere to
unstable, monkeysphere now has gpg-agent processes running as root:

$ pgrep -a gpg | grep -i monk
27043 gpg-agent --homedir /var/lib/monkeysphere/authentication/core
--use-standard-socket --daemon
27061 gpg-agent --homedir /var/lib/monkeysphere/authentication/sphere
--use-standard-socket --daemon

>   systemctl --user enable dirmngr

BTW, does this make parcimonie obsolete? I noticed that dirmngr
suggests tor and the gnupg package in experimental still suggests
