No. We won't even support --keyring in the future because the concept
of a keyring may change over time. The only configuration which makes
sense is a different homedir.

This should work for you, however there is no guantee that this will
work in the future. Better plan ahead and make use of different
Homedirs than to switch keyrings. One goal of gpgme is to hide the
actual implementation of the engine and the keyring is such a thing.
Even the notation of a homedir might eventually be different between
gpgme and a backend engine (i.e. gpg).
