Right - needs recompiling all client code. Though for c++, ABI tends
to break all the time, so how large a problem is that really?

I took inspiration from other places in context.h ;)

More seriously, I only see bad options here. We either:
- introduce global state
- duplicate all four exportPublic-functions & add a qualifier to the
  method names
- or admit this was an oversight to not expose the gpgme_op_export()
  flags from c++, and break ABI

Which one would you prefer?

Eh, that should be obvious? I need to opionally export keys minimally,
but the cpp binding does not expose gpgme_op_export()'s flag
parameter. I also cannot (easily) fallback to using the C binding
directly, due to stuff being class-private.
