The keyring is an internal propery of GnuPG and thus we can't provide an
API in GPGME.  What we do instead is to allow swicthing GnuPG's home
directory via gpgme_set_engine_info.

Do you want to use gpgme as a API for gpgv ?  It might be useful to
consider a new gpgme_protocol for verifying keys using a redefined set
of keys.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
