Improving the command line UI of gpg

My opinion regarding this request: I completely follow Werner. Don't 
extend the core GnuPG tool by adding a second user interface into the 
core without urgent need, risiking unnecessary compatibility issues 
and even unnecessary security vulnerabilities. If you want another 
interface, feel free to write a wrapper, based either on the existing 
command line interface or on GPGME.
