You are correct.  This part of GPGME is quite incomplete (if you look into
gpgme/import.c, you will see that the status handler is just a dummy).

Same problem for export, delete, and partially for genkey.  That requires
more work, I am not sure if gpg is providing the necessary information.  If
it does, it will be quite easy to fill this in, if it doesn't, it needs to
be fixed first.
