Hi Phillip,
You should be able to get the desired effect without changing the
tool: instead, create a symlink in a directory that is earlier than
that of gpg (e.g., in your ~/bin directory) that is named "gpg" and
that points to the program you want to use in its place.  Then it
should just work.

The trouble with hard-coding a version number in the name of the tool
is that many are already using a "gpg" that is version 2, and may not
have the "2"-suffixed name around at all.
