What are MS doing when they get it right, though? I'd look at the differences between those two to identify what they've messed up here.

Though not directly related to our issues, this bug report on the MSYS2 site reported by their users encountering trouble with GPGME provides additional weight to irreconcilable differences between MSYS2 and GnuPG:

Though apparently resolved back in May, this is what ultimately led to T4191 and was thus only properly resolved quite recently.
See T3505 for more in depth coverage of this issue. Essentially this is a duplicate under a slightly altered POV.
Confirmed that this is indeed fixed and made the (rather minor) change to the HOWTO that was needed. No changes were needed for the example script (decrypt-file.py).
This has now been tested on a 32-bit Gentoo VM and it behaves as expected with 32-bit system detection and creating keys with pre-2038 expirations working.

Commit 8613727f1ee985c3cfa2c815523312914f033ffd adds considerable detail on both the issues affecting compiling and installing a Windows version of the bindings and what it would take to actually resolve it.

I'll deploy one on AWS somewhere briefly once I've replaced a certain external keyboard, there will almost certainly be an existing image of some Linux distro in the AWS marketplace and I'd be very surprised if it took more than an hour or two of compute time to confirm.

Ooh, nice catch @dkg, I just stepped through each of your changes and it all looks good. I'll tweak the relevant sections of the HOWTO dealing with this in the next few days (I need to replace a keyboard here before properly diving back in) and then close this case once done.

MacPorts doesn't currently ship the bindings at all, but I'll see what they need to make that a reality too.
While this is now ideal for Debian, it may cause conflicts with other downstream vendors with slightly different needs to build their packages. In particular the FreeBSD ports and/or pkg system.

Nesting the op_genkey() calls inside try/except statements with the exceptions being caught as "oops" and otherwise "oops" being set to None provides a means of checking whether the 2099 expiration is a problem and 2037 is not.
Well, I guess this answers my question in T4192 regarding why op_genkey was in use.
Interesting, I'll look into it, but is there a reason for using op_genkey instead of create_key (optionally with create_subkey and/or key_add_uid)? The latter should be easier and more pythonic.
This should already be possible, iirc the Arch Linux maintainer patched
it in. I believe there is a 'prepare' target that takes care of all the
preparations (duh), and then you can build for every Python version by
executing the Python build system with the Python version of your choice.

In the interests of completeness I also tried it on a much larger file (1GB) which was both signed and encrypted. I also set the decryption to show the session key just to confirm it was decrypting since the plaintext was being sent to /dev/null.
I am unable to replicate this on OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
