pgp/mime support in gpg

Just a thought.  Would it not be very helpful for
plugin writers if the gpg binary was able to generate
pgp/mime emails?

What I have in mind is a flag like --email which would
alter encryption/decryption/signing operations so that
an email was expected as input, and the
encrypted/decrypted email given as output.  Recipient
lists could still be specified explicitly, but it
would mean that the plugin writer would only have to
deal with the work of managing keys etc., not the work
of mangling the message to comply with the pgp/mime

As I say, just a thought.
