Don't know anything about the gpgme library. But to access gnupg directly, you 
don't parse the normal userinterface, but you use the --status-fd, 
--passphrase-fd  and --command-fd (and perhaps --attribute-fd) arguments, 
this interface should be stable and will not be localized.

Can't say about docs, haven't played around with this myself.
