My wording might be confusing; let me rephase: I don't think GPGME has a
means of using GnuPG's selections, which the applications can rely on.

EasyPG is modelled after GPGME, and Gnus is an application using it,
thus it is a responsiblity of Gnus to select usable keys by itself.

If there is the means to do that in GPGME now, yes, it would be nice for
EasyPG to provide a similar mechanism which can be used from Gnus.
Otherwise, IMO, neither EasyPG nor Gnus should try to do the selection
by calling gpg directly, even if it could be useful.
