I have just noticed that

which is the official website for gpgme advertises only 0.3 and calls  
0.4.3 "unstable". libgpg-error is not mentioned at all. I am looking  
forward to gpgme and libgpg packaged together in one package - possibly  
allowing for static linking as long as this library has this status (I  
guess I should just try to get this message through to gpgme

IMVHO, "potential" saving few hudred kb is just not worth the hassle -  
myself, I would split packages physically only if there were already  
several programs using given library: Occham razor should be applied  
here.  As far as I am concerned your patch could be commited but I am  
not sure whether it will actually improve anything apart from chasing a  
moving target.
