Libgcrypt does not implement protocols but provides low-level building
blocks.  Look at the SLOC (count source lines of code) as an indication:
 69786   libgcrypt-1.5.0-betaN    Crypto primitives
 11392   libgpg-error-1.10        Shared error codes
171180   gnupg-2.1.0beta2         GnuPG proper
 31145   libksba-1.2.0            X.509 / CMS support
 17974   libassuan-2.0.1          IPC library 

 43763   gpgme-1.3.0              Library API to GnuPG.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
