I am not in a position to affirm or deny that Kmail works with PGP as
described in the subsequent paragraphs.  However, I can say that Kmail
does not recognise any of the gpg commands that now work perfectly from
the command line and Kmail's  Composer screen the `sign' and `encrypt' 
icons and the option to `attach my public key' continue to be shown as
`not available'
