You are correct but that is no issue on headless systems. Pinentry is a
problem to run gpg unattended; is that what you were thinking of?

At any rate, those few people that want to run gpg unattended will be
able to build gnupg1 from AUR, wait for version 2.1, or hack a script
that emulates a pinentry program but gives a predetermined passphrase.
