Setting digest-algo for a signature via gpgme?

Is it possible to set the digest-algo used via gpgme when creating
some clearsigned text?  The goal would be to generate a signature and
ensure that, say, SHA-256 is used.  It can be done if a config file is
created, but for the case where this is being done, I am told setting
up config files would be nice to avoid.

In the end this will be done via pygpgme, but I want to check if it's
even possible with gpgme first because after reading through the
documentation, I don't have a good feeling for whether it is.

Thanks for any pointers.
