I'd hoped the GPGME maintainers would release new versions of python-gpg
in tandem with GPGME, but since that's not the case, we should not use
gpgme's package-version in python-gpg.

Can you try it? I'm not an assword user, so I can't adequately test the
combination of gpgme-1.9.0 and python-gpg-1.8.0.

Right, this technique doesn't work if one forgets to update the other
packages... as I forgot to do in this case :)
