That is actually on the TODO list but it will take quite some time to
get implemented. We need to modify basically all code paths to convey
some state - unless you don't need any concurrency.
There is another performance problem, I consider even more important
than the repeated fork/exec: The searching within the keyrings is
highly inefficient and need to be tackled at the same time. I have
some basic code to do this.
The current plan however is to get out a GnuPG 2.0 asap and then to
work on the server issue and keyring searching.
