The only problem with extra security or an additional authentification
is that the GPG code also needs to implement it. It bloats up the code
if we need to add schemes for W98 and WNT/W2K. In my opionion there is
no easy solution for Windoze. As a result currently the agent is only
useable for single user machines.

Perhaps somebody knows a better solution, then please let me know ;-).
