Yeah, there is long standing request to add a feature to to that
directly in gpg.

There won't be support for it in GPGME.  Why should we make it easy to
do key escrow.  If we ever add a a re-encrypt feature to gpg, if would
make sense to add this to GPGME as well.  But please don't demand it for
the --{show,override}-session-key options.
