downloaded the GPG sources and located DETAILS.
Now have to read document, but it seems doable at least...

Hi, Bo. There should be a file called DETAILS (in doc/DETAILS in the
gnupg source, or maybe included with your local installation) that
describes in detail the meaning of the --with-colons output. It's
exactly the reference you're looking for when writing a program to parse
the --with-colons output.
$ head gnupg2-2.0.14/doc/DETAILS
-*- text -*-
Format of colon listings
First an example:
$ gpg --fixed-list-mode --with-colons --list-keys \
--with-fingerprint --with-fingerprint wk at gnupg.org
