Feature #11746: OpenPGP Applet: get rid of libgtk3-simplelist-perl
OpenPGP Applet: rewrite key selection interface
The public key selection interface in OpenPGP Applet currently uses Gtk3::SimpleList.
The problem is, since it's a simple list we can't display the ids as subentries, and we use a tooltip for that.
Also, it's buggy since the port to Gtk3 (#12190).
- fix the bug
- display the ids as subentries of each public key
- add a search box
Ideally, we would mimic Seahorse's interface. The first implementation doesn't have to be as neat, though.

We could (delegate pubkey encryption to
IMO at this point we should take a step back and check if the cost/benefit is worth it, compared to delegating public key encryption to
seahorse-tool), but there are a few issues in my book:
- we have to use a temporary file, seahorse-tool doesn't read from stdin or write to stdout. Files are encrypted as <filename.pgp>,
- encryption creates only binary format file, there is no way to armor it,
- decryption is the same: it takes the file and write a new file, named
<encryptedfile minus the last 4 chars>. Without checking if there is an existing file of the same name, by the way
- on my laptop, with my (admitedly long) public keyring, it takes 20-30 seconds to display the key selection interface (less than 5 seconds currently with openpgp-applet)
- we don't have any way to see alternate identities or fingerprint in the seahorse-tool key-
While we may work around some of those issues, I feel it would be best to rewrite the key selection interface as depicted in the issue description (and I'm willing to work on it).
