Ok. I think that the order of command line arguments should not matter,
and that a command line argument directed toward on algo should not
affect another.

There's also a slight problem that if you have the line
"disable-cipher-algo IDEA" in your options file like I do, then neither
extension will load.

BTW, wasn't there a disable-digest-algo option at some time in the past?
It doesn't exist now. There's only pubkey and cipher. I'm only asking
about it's status.
