That's great... thank you very much for taking the time to show me that.
BTW, where did you find that numbered list of Algorithms? One final
question has to do with AES-128, and that being why we don't have AES-256
available? I presume it's supported but just not included in the 1.0.4-1
binary? That would answer my question as to why PGP always shows AES-128
as the Algorithm used on Keys generated by GPG, regardless of whether I
list AES-256 as my preferred Algorithm. ;o)
If I was able to compile my own binary, would I be able to include AES-256
in my Preferences?
