Sure, if that's OK for a still somewhat experimental stage.

I did search for current gnupg Python bindings and thought
that there ought to be a in-process solution, but
have to confess that until three days ago,
I wasn't even aware that both exist.

I started out with python2 because, having used it mainly
for scientific computing, I am still more comfortable doing
experimental stuff with it. But I agree for the long term
and libraries being available, python3 is better.
