Sorry, I can't apply such a large pacth without a disclaimer or

By the way, Michael is going to experiment with a different approach
on running gpg as a coprocess.  This might make things easier.

I  was very glad to see that someone is working again on GnomePGP and
it looks pretty nice.  Some notes on this:

 - Please do not put to much work into the GnomePGP /GnuPG interfacing
   stuff as we may have a library which takes care of that in the near

 - If it is possible for you to conditional compile the GNOME stuff
   in, please do so.  The advantage of this is that it will be
   possible to port it to Windoze
   #include  <i-dont-like-it-but-in-the-meantime-disclaimer.h>
   due the the existence of GTK for Win32.  

 - At some point in the future we will have a CORBA interface and 
   a GNOME program should use it then.  Hmmm, this conflicts with 
   the previous point.
