Does anyone have a working setup to use gpg-agent in combination with msysGit on Windows?

I have a setup for ssh-agent and it works fine but I can't get gpg-agent to work on Windows.

I tried both a separate setup and replacing the ssh-agent with it using --enable-ssh-agent but the main problem is that even passing --daemon it will block the invoking console process instead of running in the background.

The goal is not to type my passphrase every time I git commit -S.
