Which is IMHO a proper interpretation of the OpenPGP specs.

Despite what a lot of people (from the ascii and inch dominated parts
of the universe) will tell, the only sesnible way to go is by using
MIME.  It has been around for more than a decade and provides all
feature you need for encryption and even better for proper signing.
And it is so easy; you can compose MIME messages by hand without
looking at the RFC.

Just say no to inline PGP!
