It is not a matter whether it is complicated or not. We care about the
code complexity - each and every line adds to it.  If you provide ways
to make the code less complex by keeping the API, it is more likely
that that this will make it into Libgcrypt.

Sorry, I see no way to apply a patch for the sake of Valgrind.
