Given the shortage of manpower in the OpenPGP community, is it not more
advisable to stick to algorithms with a few miles on the clock, such as
GCM, even if they may not be strictly ideal? There will never be an
ideal encryption algorithm after all, just ones with known problems and
ones with unknown problems... ;-)
