True, Werner went a long way to keep it stable.

Still it is a bit of a pain to keep it this way and a better interface is 
called for anyway, because this has limitations to build good interface. 
This is whey we have gpgme for more than 10 years, Werner also did a very good 
job there.  Gpgme needs to get more popular, probably improved along the way,
but it also would help to make the crypto-experience with GnuPG a lot better 
for developers and users alike.
