Use it.  It is probably better debugged than other tools invoking gpg
and well, I amthe manin author of both and so I take care that both
are working.

I don't undertstand this.  The standard library conventions are of
course honoured and I once stated that I see no reason to change an
existing API.

Of course not!  The GNU project[1] does not support proprietary
software or advocates its use.=20

Why do you want to use PGP?  Aren't you still not upset enough about
their policies and deliberately introduced incomptibilities? Tssss.
