+ Use this custom program instead of "`gpg`" found on `$PATH` when
+ making or verifying a PGP signature. The program must support the
+ same command-line interface as GPG, namely, to verify a detached
+ signature, "`gpg --verify $file - <$signature`" is run, and the
+ program is expected to signal a good signature by exiting with
+ code 0, and to generate an ASCII-armored detached signature, the
+ standard input of "`gpg -bsau $key`" is fed with the contents to be
+ signed, and the program is expected to send the result to its
+ standard output.
+ Specifies which key format to use when signing with `--gpg-sign`.
+ Default is "openpgp" and another possible value is "x509".
+ Use this to customize the program used for the signing format you
+ chose. (see `gpg.program` and `gpg.format`) `gpg.program` can still
+ be used as a legacy synonym for `gpg.openpgp.program`. The default
+ value for `gpg.x509.program` is "gpgsm".
