I'd love to closely integrate GPG and GNUtls but the current situation
doesn't allow me to do any better than what I outlined above.

Concretely, I resorted to exporting both the public key and private key
with GPG, putting them into files (hmm...) and feeding those files to
GNUtls (via `gnutls_certificate_set_openpgp_key_file ()').  This is
indeed not ideal.  ;-)

But this is getting a bit off-topic.
