Mostly the documentation: python-gnupg's interface is fully documented 
with docstrings (with examples checked in the test suite) and 
it has an in-depth manual/tutorial[1].

among the other python interfaces to gnupg functionality, 
python-gnupginterface seems to be the one documented best 
in the module, but the last release was in 2002 and the 
homepage[2] features broken links both to the mailing list 
and documentation.
The docstrings for both python-gpgme and python-pyme are 
both poor, and in the case of pyme the homepage just refers 
to the pgpme docs, which are complete, but of course based on the 
slighty different conventions of the C library.
