I'd feel much better if there was more than one implementation done  
for Camellia, just to prove there isn't some error somewhere.  The PGP  
folks mentioned they would likely support Camellia eventually, but  
it's not there to test with yet.  Maybe I'll quickly put some Camellia  
support into openpgpsdk just to prove interoperability.
