Ain't killing Blowfish160 too much hassle?

Mind you, I don't know much about all this... but I wonder whether we
really have to be OpenPGP compliant in all respects.

I seem to recall 'GNU is compatible, but also more powerful' or

Can't we make up some format that is a superset of OpenPGP?

I really don't like OpenPGP to make some (potential... beneficial?)
features of GPG impossible (illegal?).
