Interesting, however, I am not sure.  Key management seems to be quite
different in gpgsm, there is a new keybox library.  So maybe there is
something else to come along than gpgme for key management.

gpgme 0.3 will be released at the weekend, if everything goes well.  This is
mostly a release for the Aegypten project, but I will also make the changes
discussed in the last two or so weeks on this list.

If you have any wishlist items for gpgme, be concrete.  The more detailed
you express what you need the better we can talk about it.
