pgpgpg does a reasonable job, though at the moment it just translates GnuPG
command-line options to PGP options, which doesn't work in every case. I
used to use it quite happily to make xfmail (which expects to find PGP)
talk to GnuPG.
Whether this would work with GPGME I couldn't say. If I were working on
a mail client (yeah, the world so needs another mail client) I'd be
inclined to simply steal the crypto frontend code from mutt. But you
didn't hear that from me.... right? :)

I prefer encrypted mail (see headers for PGP key)
