I'll point out that this can not be done due to Arch's patching policy. 
  Arch does not patch software for features not provided upstream, so 
any patch will be required to go to the gpgme and be accepted before it 
is even considered for the Arch package.

I would also suspect, that patches for pacman that rely on unreleased 
changes to gpgme would not be accepted, so we would then need to wait on 
a new gpgme release...
