Actually, it isn't in a library :-/, unless you accept that the highest file
descriptor is low enough to make a loop closing all but some file
descriptors feasible (this is why RLIMIT_NOFILE in the Hurd was changed to a
soft limit of 1024 fd's, although the Hurd supports an unlimited number of
file descriptors).

That's because I have not taken care of the documentation yet (the "I did
not figure that part out yet").  Will do so before releasing gpgme 0.3.
