Thanks all!

David: about the --list-config command, it would be nice if we could 
get all options; that shouldn't be too much work to implement ;-)
The idea of gpgconf seems interesting, as it is not targeted only to 
gpg but all other commands. Markus, will you provide an interface to it 
in gpgme? (personally I can wait, I already have my own parser and I 
need some more important features to be added to gpgme first, as well 
as bug fixes ;-)
