It's basically a "sketch" at the moment. There's some basic
functionality there for reading, verifying signatures, etc., tests for
it, a bit of command line stuff, etc. However, the goals of the project
(if you go and read them--the file is in the docs directory) are not to
build a clone of gpg, but to build a fairly modular toolkit, as well as
a command line app, and we're far from that.
In otherwords, I think it's nowhere near ready to import.

Indeed; that is one of the things we hope to fix in the future.

We're open to other options, if you can find something that will be as
clean and fast and easy to write. Replacing twenty lines of Ruby with
300 lines of C is not exactly what we're looking for, however.
As well, we're really going to want an extension language for the
command line client, I think. I'm not sure what to do about that sort of
