Good to hear.

I fully agree with the sentiment of "the right tool for the right
job", but I think Bernhard has a point in so far as it seems that the
time has come to make gnupg2 the "main" release now.

I wonder: could it ever become possible to build a "downsized" version
for specific purposes and limited dependencies from the gnupg2 branch?

That might make maintenance of 1.4 unnecessary in the long run.
