Having it managed by git.  The obvious use-case here being for shared
password storage for a team, where you want to ensure that adding a new
key (or removing an old one) means everyone's config is updated
automatically.  Relying on individuals to update their gpg.conf files
manually in that situation is going to go wrong sooner or later.
