The overal goal, as far as I can see,
is to get acceptance within python programming people first.

Will modularity and restfullness help here?
I have no clear conception of what it will mean for the python bindings
of gpgme.

While I like json over more complex data types, I wouldn't expect it from a 
python-gpgme binding right away.
