Sure.  Also, it reminds me I've a little tweaking of it left after all.

I've also given more thought to its eventual replacement after GPGME
gets its overhaul and I think I'm leaning more towards CFFI than
Cython to replace SWIG.  I do love the idea of Cython, but that's not
a good enough reason to select it for the job.  CFFI, however, gives
some significant benefits.  Not least of which being: only needing to
write Python code, native support for JIT interpreters (i.e. PyPy) and
most performance tests indicate it's the most resource efficient of
its kind.  It's also the C framework of choice for certain other
crypto modules (e.g. pyca/, PyCrypto and others
others).  It might make some of those things play together much more
