And (only slightly expanding on the topic) some people want it
"medium-centric", not "computer-centric"; i.e., they want to run gpg
of removable medium, with no permanent footprint (or droppings) on
the computer it is running on.
There are many arguments - some have been visited on this list before -
why this might or might not be a prudent way to use gpg. But I propose
that such use is becoming more and more common (think of home and work
computers...) and I propose that the excellent developers of an excellent
product should listen to a growing segment of their user base.
