I believe that this is the case.  Others might only start looking at it
because it is 1.0 now.   As soon as GPGME fully supports descriptor
passing we will come up with a shared lib.

No.  It does not make much sense.  Both use only the client part and
tehre is no point in adding all the support for servers.  If is not
much code anyway.
