>From [0], I have the feeling that GnuPG's OpenPGP message handling is
not readily "librarifiable".  So until the GnuPG developers decide to
librarify it, it seems that there's no choice but to use OpenCDK in
GnuTLS.  However, distributing the OpenPGP message-related part of GnuPG
as a library would be an additional burden for the GnuPG people, which
they might want to avoid.
