Such a feature would be mega! It would also be great to have a simple  
access to it through gpgme, as it would *really* simplify writing a  
user-friendly MUA.

However (I'm also not following the OpenPGP WG, so mayby it has already  
been discussed there) I would suggest to add RFC2440 to the possible  
formats, as some clients (e.g. pgp4pine or [spit] Outlook/GData) rely on  

Cheers, Albrecht.
