Well, as a user of Debian 'unstable' I know it works with GPGME 1.1.5 
but you are right that I may need to have this info back on the SF page 
as well. I'll see if that could be automated.

It looks like GPGME is very good candidate for the SWIG - its interface 
design is almost object oriented so that there are very few supporting 
classes necessary to make it python friendly. And I do believe 'E' in 
there stands for 'Easy' which is the  usual requirement for the 'high 
level' bindings. :)

I'd recommend to start with examples provided with pyme. There's even 
some Glade based GUI ones if you like that sort of things. :)

And as for the reports - Bring them on! ;)
