Thanks for working on this. I left a bunch of comments, but overall the
direction looks good.

We talked about this a bit off-list, but just for the public record:

This series is a fine replacement for that earlier work. It's flexible
enough to allow what we really wanted out of that series (gpgsm support,
or another drop-in tool that uses the same interface). It doesn't lay
any groundwork for further tools (like signify), but I think the
consensus on the list was to punt on that until somebody had more
concrete plans for adding such a tool.
