Right, this is what you should do.  However, it does not matter in
practice when using gpg (gpgsm is a bit better in this regard).  The
idea is that we can improve gpgme and all applications would benefit
from that improvement. 

What is missing in gpg is a server mode so that gpg can be run by gpgme
as a coprocess.  There is some very basic support for this but it is far
from being complete.  Up until now there was no real pressure to finish
that feature.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
