Tails Greeter uses GnuPGInterface whose not maintained anymore. We should replace it with Isis's fork of python-gnupg (ITP).

I do hope that Isis' forks lands into the Debian archive some day, but in the meantime, why isn't the python3-gnupg package (upstream, already in Wheezy and Jessie) good enough for our needs?

If I remember well, it used to lack using a custom keyring (
self.options.extra_args = ["--keyring", keyring, "--no-default-keyring"] in
whisperBack/encryption.py) but official documentation state it's possible using the
keyring keyword at class instanciation (http://pythonhosted.org//python-gnupg/#getting-started).
So there seems me to be no reason it wouldn't be good enough.
