Right. I checked with Hal Finney to use this becuase we were sure that no other implemtations did use those algorithms. Using --force-mds will do what the name says but don't complain if the recipient can decrypt it.

The soon to be released next I-D will introduce a Feature flag which will allow an implementation to announce its MDC capability. Actually the last one already did this but the I-D expired in April and has been removed from the ftp servers -- Werner Koch Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur g10 Code GmbH et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est.
