May we assume that RSA will be integral part of GnuPG at that time? If so, will it make a big difference over compiling the rsa.c module as we're doing right now?

Someone said recently that OpenPGP standard was based on PGP 5.x, but being the standard newer than the system version, the latest would obviously not be fully compliant with the standard. Fair. Anyone dares to give his/her view on why PGP 6.x is not OpenPGP compliant? -- Horacio Anno MMDCCLIII aUC Valencia - ESPAŅA -------------------------------------------------------------------- Key fingerprint = F4EE AE5E 2F01 0DB3 62F2 A9F4 AD31 7093 4233 7AE6
