The reason is that I create the output stream in binary mode, I can
see wether it is possible to switch to the MSDOS provides text mode.

There should not be any wrod wrap - you want to sign the message as it
is and not some rendered version of the message (which might get
another meaning due to word wrapping).

I don't think that the -a is a good think at all.  There are MIME
types defined for the transport of keys. 

I even don't think that sending ascii stuff to a keyserver is a must;
we have a 8-bit clean channel and therefore it is best to use binary
(if the keysever would support it).
