We have a pending CQ for Bouncy Castle [1], if we get approval to use that
we should go this path. We would be happy to see your contributions on
this topic. As long as the CQ isn't approved we can't submit a bouncy castle
based implementation.

Another possibility would be to enable use of an external GPG implementation
by forking another process similar to what we have to enable using an
external SSH implementation (see jgit commit 22e720ce).
