lights my fire :^) in what way? i have both the status- and logger-fd turned
on for watching purposes. the output might be parsed to get the precise
overall picture, and there are not many verbs, and nothing you would call
"fuzzy", contextual information. on the other hand the gnupg's docs are
not complete. so, how about making an incrementally learning parser, done
in prolog, which will take over the whole thing in the near future, making
the handling of any kind of encryption a breeze even for a child?
and maybe, when the software, personalized to the most intimate utterances,
takes all the shortcuts available, it might not even be neccessary to type
in a passphrase, or to use gpg in the first place!
