Hi Jacob,

This seems to work for me now, but it looks like it's tricky to get the
date string right in the parameters pased to gpgme. The line must be like

Expire-Date: 2005-01-01

If you write the date any differently (2005-1-1, 20050101), it won't work,
and in some cases even fail silently and create keys that don't expire.
