I considered to use Magenta because it is a German Product :-))
RC6 is patented and frankly I don't like to support RSA Inc.
TWofish is really one of the fastest. IF you have attended that
AES conference in Rome, you probaly know that everyone gets a
perfomrance rank lits which makes his cipher look best.
We agreed at the OpenPGP WG to add Twofish as an optional cipher.
PGP 6 or whatever will use Twofish too.
