I think the recommendation for those folks would be something like:

    mkdir -p ~/bin
    ln -s $(which gpg2) ~/bin/gpg

though i'm inclined to just suggest that people don't do the "gpg2"
co-installable thing at all, since gpg 1.4 and 2.1 diverge on both
public keyrings and secret keyrings, and 2.0 is EOL in < 6 months.
