It is unlikely that this will go into 1.4 - these would be huge changes
and I see no reason to backport them. If you really want this future
OpenPGP you need to invest a lot of time to deploy it and thus the
desciosn whether to use 1.4 or 2.0 would be a minor one.

Sure. It might even build on some platforms but won't be usable due to
missing OS features (descriptor passing comes to mind).

That is already the case.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
