Know your competition; "GPG Keychain Access" exists for MacOSX, can be
found at http://gpgtools.org/keychain.html and is part of GPGTools,
which also provides Mail.app integration, etc.  It's distributed under
the GPLv3.

I'm not saying "don't do it", I'm just pointing out what already exists.
Perhaps you can do better.  My less-PGP-savvy colleagues swear by it,
and I only don't use it much because I'm too used to the command-line.
(I have it installed anyway, to support those colleagues.)

The hip cool kids, apparently, are using "brew" and I get sneered at for
using MacPorts.  That's what I get for going to San Francisco
periodically.  ;-)  It uses Ruby, it uses GitHub, it must be cool,

"Not installed" because I didn't install with brew.  Myself, I'm using
MacPorts, and just behind that in $PATH is a version which came with the
GPGTools installer.
