Um, no. There is nothing "broken" about an OpenPGP product not implementing Blowfish. I was just talking to Phil Z. about this issue last week. Twofish is a lot nicer than Blowfish. If you are in love with Bruce Schneier's work, use Twofish if you must. Even CAST and 3DES are probably better choices than Blowfish. I don't even think that Bruce recommends people use Blowfish anymore. __ L.
