Is it ready for production yet?
Will it be binary compatible within minor revision numbers?
Does it support PGP?
If one of the questions' answers is 'no', then we can't use gpgme (yet).
We would love to get rid of the interface coding for various PGP/GPG
versions, but if this means that we need to depend on an ever-changing
lib which doesn't support PGP, we can't do it.
What I really need is some example code for "how to do it right". Not
only for gnupg, but also for pgp. I'll have a look at some of the stuff
listed under "frontend" on the gnupg homepage, but someone could point
me to a specific frontend that "does it right", I'd be very thankful.
