When I see this change to the program, I wonder how a new user will react: "How do I, Joe Newbie, switching from pgp to gpg use my current keypair? Does this mean I have to generate a new keypair? But I thought the two were compatible!" Is this *really* the best plan for overcoming the danger? Something that could cause a lot of confusion? Unless I misunderstand the issue, which is entirely possible.
