Conform to XDG Base Directory Specification

It'd be nice if gnupg conformed to freedesktop's XDG Base Directory Specification.

If all applications conformed to this, it'd make backing up important config
files, while ignoring large directories such as ~/.mozilla, fast and easy.

Please explain.

I assume you want to change $HOME/.gnupg to something like $XDG_DATA_HOME/gnupg.
Obviously this is not a good idea because ~/.gnupg is a weel established
standard for more than 10 years. We can't change this just for the purpose of
easier backup. However, there are simple workarounds like setting
GNUPGNOME=$XDG_DATA_HOME/gnupg or by using a symlink.
