Only PGP 2 is compatible to PGP 2. GPG can decode PGP 2, but the other
way this doesn't work (either signing or encrypting is a problem,
don't ask me, which of the two was).

I don't think so. Both are problematic...

set pgp_default_version=pgp2 # pgp2, pgp5, gpg (default for the following)
set pgp_receive_version=gpg # pgp-version for decrypting and verifying sigs
set pgp_send_version=default # pgp-version for composing messages
set pgp_key_version=default # pgp-version for extracting and sendig keys
This uses PGP2 for everything except checking signatures and
decrypting received messages, where GPG is used.

I didn't see any, but it should be quite easy to change pgpverify in
