That would require a new feature in gpgme to mark a key as hidden.  Due
to the reference counting we use with key objects we would at least need
a deep copy operation for keys and a function to set such a flag.

Do you really think that this is required?

What we could add far easier is an encryption flags which sets the
--throw-keyid option of gpg and thus all recipients would be hidden.
