Imo, yes, it's a worthy goal to get these ported so that at least gnupg(1)
doesn't land in any default install.

fyi, here's my inquiry upstrem on whether it's possible or a good idea to
try dropping gnupg1:
http://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-devel/2008-July/024485.html
(come to think of it, my question there wasn't phrased all too well, but the
feedback was insightful)

answer: probably not a good idea.  

So, that leaves consolidating/standardizing on gnupg2, as something still
worthwhile.
