I agree with you.  The solution I use is to have the following in my
emacs initialisation:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(require 'epa)
(if (not window-system)
    (setenv "GPG_AGENT_INFO" nil)) ;to avoid graphical pop-up when on tty
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

this will cause emacs to use the mini-buffer for passphrase input so it
solves one problems; unfortunately, it means that the passphrase is not
cached (i.e. by gpg-agent) so you may have to type it repeatedly.  so
it's not a complete solution...
