It's reduced *twice*. Once by GPGME directly, and then once by whatever
language binding to GPGME you're using. Not all language bindings are
made equal. The C++ one is reasonably good; the Python one, likewise.
But the C# one is alpha-quality only, the Java ones don't even compile
any more, and so on.
