I'd like to join James in confirming that PyMe in its turn is also
stable. :o) It does not miss any of the gpgme bits due to the usage of
the SWIG for the build but the main stopper for it to become 1.0 is the
lack of good pydoc documentation for its own and generated from gpgme
classes and methods. Plus, the current runtime dependency it has on
Windows needs some improvement.
