Backup and restore ~/.gnupg of course.

The secret keys are special.  Where else do you have problems?

Direct access to keyservers?  gpg supports colon formatted output and
thus we are able to add this keyserver searches to gpgme.  We ahve
already done this for gpgsm, so the infrastructure is more or less

Manipulation of options?  gpgconf (from gnupg 1.9) does this job fine
for KDE and works with all current gpg versions.
