No, please don't do that! The API to access the keyrings are the
--import and --export commands.
It might work now but may change at any time. It is not a good idea to
suggest this use. For example the file ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg and
~/.gnupg/secring.gpg use private extensions to the OpenPGP format.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
