See <URL:>.  I'm not aware
if usage in the USA is allowed, but everything I hear seems to point to it 
not being a problem outside of .us.  The sample code seems usable.

IANAL, of course.

BTW, if this isn't offtopic, has anyone been able to create signatures 
using GPG and those modules that pgp2 can read?  I can successfully 
encrypt to an RSA public key and then decrypt with pgp2, but no luck
on a verifiable signature when signing with my old RSA key.
