GPGME and multiple subkeys

I am currently trying to use GPGME in a project (
http://gobelins.nekeme.net ), and I have run into some trouble.
In our project, we had envisionned using OpenPGP keys for signing and
encrypting data, using subkeys created especially for Gobelins: someone
using his everyday GPG key to play would have a Gobelins signature
subkey and a Gobelins encryption subkey added to his key.
However, after looking through the programmer's reference of GPGME, I
didn't find any way of signing data with a specific subkey. There is a
function to sign data, but it takes the key as a whole.
Is this something which is part of OpenPGP (not being able to sign using
a specific signature subkey), or is it just that GPGME cannot do this
yet? If this is the case, when would it be implemented, and what other
library could I use instead of GPGME to be able to sign using a specific
Thanks in advance
