FYI, there is a minimal version of opencdk which is licensed under LGPL,
it is included in gnutls.  Probably it should be released on its own,
but we don't know what to do with the GPL'd larger opencdk in that case.
Maybe the lgpl version should be renamed.  On the other hand, I'm not
sure if any non-gnutls applications needs anything from the full opencdk
that isn't in the lgpl opencdk.

However, I would also recommend looking at GPGME.
