If gnupg owns the directory, but your package doesn't need gnupg to function,
your packages are permitted to co-own the directory with gnupg:

A -filesystem package is a little cleaner, so it'd be nice to pursue that option
if the gnupg maintainers are amenable.  But, there's no need to block on either
them or FPC to get this done since directory co-ownership is explicitly
permitted in this instance.
