With GnuPG 2 we will be able to run gpg in a server mode (like gpgsm).
This allows for a more flexible interface and to write a library on
top of it.  gpgme is one such library but one might want to write a
different one for tasks like OpenPGP message mangling and such.
Eventually we will see an OpenPGP parsing library similar to libksba
(the X.509/CMS library used by gpgsm).

My long standing security concerns won't be valid anymore with
gpg-agent taking the part of handling the more sensitive data.
