Well, it might work or might not work.  The current SVN evrsion is
definitely better.

Udner Windows you don't need to care about envvars or --daemon.  gpgsm
starts gpg-agent on demand.  The other tools should do that do but it
has not yet been implemented.

There are a couple of things to watch out for.  For example, all file
descriptors are system handles of course.  I was recently abale to send
a signed mail from claws using gpgme and gpgsm.
