Of course not: pgp 2.x versions only use IDEA for conventional encryption.

That's worse. I tested this with pgp 2.6.3i and gpg 1.0.2: a file that is
conventional encrypted by pgp 2.6.3i can be decrypted with gpg if you put
the following in the options file:
I did not find a method for the other way arround: a file that is
conventionally encrypted with gpg 1.0.2 with this options always
gives a bad passphrase error in pgp 2.6.3i.
What I also notice is that with these options gpg seems not to compress
the output file. Is compress-algo 2 obly usable for decryption?
