Sorry, I don't actually follow the discussion.  Would you care to
explain how gpgme is handling this?

I have never wanted to diverge epg.el from gpgme, and tried not to
implement any features not supported by gpgme.  Of course, due to some
limitations of Emacs IPC, we sometimes had to use a different mechanism
to communicate with gpg.
