Not happening. Look in the archives of this list for details.

(Probably) not happening. Steganography is grossly overhyped as a
technology. Moulin and O'Sullivan's _An Information-Theoretic Analysis
of Data Hiding_ (1999) was an attempt to put steganography on firm
mathematical foundations to make it a peer of cryptography; in the
course of this, they proved the Emperor had no clothes.
ObNote: I am not a GnuPG developer. My 'not happening' is born of prior
remarks by the core developers, but I am neither speaking for the
developers nor claiming they can't change their minds. :)
