We tried to provide the same Intent API as APG, but in the process discovered
that in order you use that API, the app had to be pegged to APG anyhow.  So
instead, we've been working with Dominik Schuermann of OpenKeychain and the
K-9 Mail devs to work out a new, better, open API for any app to implement as
a OpenPGP provider, and any app to use for OpenPGP services.

Our notes on the effort are here, feedback welcome:
