Please wrap your lines at 60-70 characters, thanx. AFAIK, GnuPG can do everything with RSA keys, except generating them. You may even use optionally IDEA and your signed/encrypted messages are PGP-2.x compatible. You may use your old PGP generated RSA keys, though. Also, you should ask yourself why you don't want to use DSA/ElGamal keys.
