No I'm talking of the kind of thing which is called "Extension modules"
in 'man perlmodlib'.

This allow would to write something like

use GnuPG;
$result=clearsign(data=>$message, key=>$signature_key, passwd=>$passwd);

in my Perl programs, and I don't want the GnuPG module to execute an
external program.

No it's not necessary to reimplement everything in Perl, the existing C
code can be used.

BTW, the reason why I'm asking is that we need something like this for
the Majordomo2 project.
