There seems to be rough consensus on openpgp at ietf.org to phase out
compression, except for backwards compatibility reasons - so proposal #1
should be fine with everyone.
Proposal #2 is more in line with the original proposal by Justus,
Vincent an Neal - and the counter-arguments were not against changing
the defaults for new keys but having to keep compression in
So GnuPG development comunity: Would you be fine in changing the default
for new keys to "Compression: Uncompressed"?
If you upload your address book to "the cloud", I don't want to be in it.
