Actually RFC1991 is not complete description of PGP 2.6

BTW, PGP2 is basically broken because it relies on the MD5 algorithm
which is considered too weak now.  Thus we won't bother to add any more
compatiblity switch for PGP 2 into GnuPG.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
