I should add a profiling option - it's worth the time.

My plan is to write a fast keyserver which does this stuff.  The 
encryption will always take up more time than the key lookup.
You should put the email addresses in left angles into a file:

# This file is the list of subscribers
-r <joe at some.net>
-r <alice at net.nil>

and call gpg with "gpg --options ~/.gnupg/options -e --options ./above-file"
If you would like to use the .qmail format I may add yet another special
option to use this file direct.

This file is stored in memory and should not be too large :-)
