After looking at this more thorougly it seems like ALL output will
appear on stderr [0].
I think it's a good idea to eat stderr here and instead use
--status-file to save status messages in a temporary file and then grep
for one of EXPSIG, EXPKEYSIG or REVKEYSIG (yes, gpg exits with status 0
even if the key that signed something has been revoked)[1] and exit
immediately with an error message. Any objections?
