There are so many issues that can happen as the result of an OpenPGP
operation. One could verify a signature, but not have the public key or a
web-of-trust line, or one could have the issue you talked aobut,
etc. What you should really look into is parsing the output of the option
"status-fd", which has information described in GnuPG's DETAILS file.
