"GnuPG Made Easy (GPGME) is a library designed to make access to GnuPG
easier for applications. It provides a High-Level Crypto API for encryption,
decryption, signing, signature verification and key management. Currently
it uses GnuPG as its backend but the API isn't restricted to this engine.
Because the direct use of GnuPG from an application can be a complicated
programming task, it is suggested that all software should try to use GPGME
instead. This way bug fixes or improvements can be done at a central place
and every application benefits from this.")
