I went back and had another look at pygpgme to see why I didn't choose
that route.  I was reminded very quickly why: it doesn't compile so
well on OS X or, indeed, at all.  I'd have to rewrite bits of it to a
much greater extent.  Plus from the PyPI view it looks a bit abandoned
(that may not actually be the case, but the version on PyPI hasn't
been updated in four years.

Oh, there is a port for it on MacPorts which might work, but it's
Python 2.7 only, so nope.
