As you know we/I regularly backport diffoscope to Debian stable, so we
care about having those tools available there as well.
So, do you plan on making gnupg-utils available in stretch-backports
(with all the ongoing maintenance that such choice entails) or do you
think that having an alternate build-dependency+recommends is a way to
go here (possibly with a version restriction, e.g.
    gnupg-utils | gnupg (<< 2.1.21-4~)

I'd like to avoid having a delta between buster and stretch-bpo, at
least not this early in the development cycle..

Also, do you plan on sending a patch for diffoscope? :D
