Maybe I'm a little irritable here, but -- pretty much everyone who's
ever hacked on GnuPG has found situations where GPGME isn't a good
solution, sometimes for architectural reasons and sometimes for API
reasons and sometimes for language binding reasons and sometimes for
licensing reasons and... etc.

No one has ever said GPGME is the all-purpose, all-in-one solution.  No
one.  So why are we having this discussion?  What was the point in even
bringing it up?
