fwiw, the patch is available on the pyme-to-python-gpg branch of my
gitlab repo:

In particular, this is the relevant commit:

If you're interested, you can do the following from your gpgme local

     git remote add dkg
     git checkout pyme-to-python-gpg

The tests all pass, and the module appears to be sensibly named.

If any gpgme developers think this is worth doing, please go ahead and
claim the "gpg" name on pypi, and you're welcome to merge my patch.

If you think this is not a good idea, i'd be happy to hear why as well.
