Tell that the people who complained for years about the missing IDEA and
PGP2 support for their v3 keys.  Apparently they want to be able to read
their old messages - which I can understand.

Thus there is no way to get rid of v3 anytime soon - well unless we
declare that all v3 support will be removed from GnuPG-2 and those who
have not come around to re-encrypt their old stuff need to use 1.4.
This is worth a discussion.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
