Excellent, I'll definitely take a peek at that. Did you opt for
ctypes, the plain Python C-API or one of the other solutions?

As long as it doesn't get too complex you can probably get Python 2.7
covered by including the UTF-8 encoding near the top of each file and
including "from __future__ import unicode_literals".

LGPL 2.1+ is good, we want people to switch to things like this or
GPGME. If it is not provided with a permissive enough license then
people will continue to use python-gnupg with its subprocess calls to
the gpg binary. Do you really want that?
Didn't think so. ;)
