Igor, you are confirming that there is only one python gpgme interface
as py-gnupg does not seem to use gpgme. There are a couple of other non-gpgme 
python interface attempts. (Which I am too lazy too look up right now.)

I still recommend using gpgme, even for the simplest operation because the 
fork and exe really never is simple.
