The typical use case for gpg is that if you control a secret key, you
mark it with "ultimate" ownertrust.

This bizarrely opaque --import-ownertrust mechanism is GnuPG's
standard mechanism to set up ultimate ownertrust (the ":6" means
"ultimate", for whatever reason).

This differs from v2 in that it adds the --quiet flag, so that the
tests don't have noisy output like "gpg: inserting ownertrust of 6"
