I don't see anything to handle gpg 2.0, specifically.  They do disable
pinentry for versions below 2.1.  Maybe their tests don't work with 2.0
either?

With '--passphrase-fd', interactions remain asynchronous from Emacs'
point of view, but gpg sends no output until receiving the passphrase on
the given fd, so the normal callback doesn't get triggered.  So to make
that work, we would have to send the callback's output immediately after
starting the gpg process.

Using '--passphrase' means giving the passphrase on the command line,
which is not very good in terms of security for normal use, though
acceptable for tests.
