I have a C++ wrapper for GPGME which works fine with encryption,
signing, and decryption.  (Decrypt + verify is still undone.)  It was a
three-day hack, not at all bad.

Surprisingly, though, I found that it was faster and easier to do a gpg
--list-keys --fingerprint --with-colons, grab the output, and parse that
to create the key database than it was to use the GPGME key-iteration
