Creating a Win32 Library for GPG?

I know that it is typically considered rude to
post to a list that your not subscribed to, but
majordomo didn't list -devel as one of the public
lists, so please CC me when you reply.
I am working on a Win32 Desktop application to
which I would like to add public key crypto support.
Are there currently any plans to turn GPG into a
LGPL Library for use by other applications
Since GPG is currently licensed under the GPL, would
it even be possible for you folks to create a LGPL'ed
GPG Library for use in applications that aren't
If creating an LGPL'ed library is possible the way
that GnuPG is licensed, roughly how big a project
would it be to create a Win32 DLL version of such
a library? What about a Mac library? A Unix so/dso
or just a library that can be statically compiled
into the application?
If any of you would potentially be interested in such
a project on a contract basis, or have any insight
on how else to go about including public key crypto
in a commercial app? One concern would be with the
actual distribution since I'm based in the US.
