A good question. I would direct it to gnupg-devel@ and ask if it is possible
with GPGME. In order to facilitate the question I directly post it there.

If it is possible with GPGME, it should be possible with pyme as well.
Make sure to use the right gpgme gnupg2 version before trying.

The gpg2 command line does not use gpgme,
but it demonstrates the the configuration and the helpers are all there.
