I don't know what this means -- i don't think that GPGME itself does key
selection.  Can you tell me more?

Presumably users who use emacs with gpg also use gpg with other tools
(possibly even other MUAs), or even gpg on its own.  Collecting key
preference data in multiple places while sharing the underlying key
store seems like a recipe for synchronization problems and confusing
behavior, particularly for folks who don't know how the tools fit
together.

I don't think i understand this either.  Can you explain more about what
you need from the GnuPG TOFU code?

Thanks for this discussion, hopefully it'll lead somewhere fruitful.
