Added support for gcrypt remotes to git-annex-shell. Now gcrypt special remotes probe when they are set up to see if the remote system has a suitable git-annex-shell, and if so all commands are sent to it. Kept the direct rsync mode working as a fallback.
It turns out I made a bad decision when first adding gcrypt support to
git-annex. To make implementation marginally easier, I decided to not
put objects inside the usual
annex/objects directory in a gcrypt remote.
But that lack of consistency would have made adding support to
git-annex-shell a lot harder. So, I decided to change this. Which
means that anyone already using gcrypt with git-annex will need to
manually move files around.
