FYI, I currently work on a basic OpenPGP libraray. Currently it only
supports simple packet parsing, some key management and to verify file
signatures. But the aim should be to provide a library for the basic
OpenPGP operations (encrypt, decrypt, sign and verify). I do NOT want
to replace GPG or any other OpenPGP implementation, but in some
situations, for example were high performance is needed, a library
should make sense to me.

For all crypto code the library uses the gcrypt library. I used
the library because this code was part of GPG for a long time
and so it should be much more analyzed.
