This is already taken (at least in debian) by the python-gnupg project's
python3 module.

python-gnupg does not have anything close to a similar interface
supported by gpgme, and it also doesn't currently support gnupg 2.1.x
i'm working on a series of patches for it, but this has been open for
over a year upstream without being fixed:

afaict, the current upstream code does not even pass the tests with
2.1.x installed :/

agreed, but these bindings are specifically connected to gpgme, and
"gpg" is at least present there.

Also, our other language bindings include the "me" in their names; why
should python bindings be any different?
