Yes, I am not saying that it is OK to keep Windows users broken.
As I understand what Dscho said correctly, his users are covered by
a reversion of the "read the GPG status correctly" patch, i.e. with
a different trade-off between the correctness of GPG status vs
usability of the prompt, he will ship with Git for Windows, and that
stop-gap measure will last only until developers who can do Windows
(which excludes you, me, and Michael it seems) comes up with a
solution that satisfies both.
I consider that an approach that is perfectly fine.
