For pkg-get/pkgutil purposes I think it's okay; in the worst case you
might have trouble verifying signatures made with gpg 1.x.  There's
also an alternatives system in the making, so at some point you'll
have a command line utility to choose between gpg implementations.

Out of curiosity, do you have a reason to use gpg2?  Is it gpg-agent?
