Na, that is not complex.  The real problem is to tell the user that the
credentials and parameters for the mail account are also required by
GnuPG.  That would be surprising.  Even if you can do that the standard
MUA would anyway received the challenge and the user needs to find out
how to pass this to gpg.

Sending arbitray MIME mails with TB is complicated to impossible but
fortunately TB already supports WKD.
