i was actually hoping to avoid *me* having to do the extra work of
figuring out how to concatenate the data with the signature.
Do you have a suggestion for how to make such a concatenator for
arbitrary 8-bit data? Do i need to build an OpenPGP data packet from my
input stream first? Is there example code of such a concatenator someplace?

I grant that my own code is more likely to be buggy than gpg's. that's
another good reason for me to not write a concatenator :)
Are you saying there is no way to pass a detached signature via a file
