Maybe this is actually worth trying to propose again, one argument that is 
missing is the lost security by emails that are send unencrypted because 
users cannot figure out how to get the pubkey of their recipients.

Werner submitted code to cleanup the code calling gpgme, which got integrated

Added a comment there, because it is a security concern to not add an easy way
