It is perhaps open for discussion whether djb's criteria for
"safecurves" can be defined as "secure ECC", but you can find recent
discussion about the use of edwards curves (EdDSA) in OpenPGP on the

short version: it's under consideration and Werner has indicated active
work on it.   No released version of gnupg has support for it yet though.
