I think you missed the point. He wants to make his code work *both* with pgp and gnupg because the user may actually use pgp instead of gnupg. I'll be concerned about that 3 issues if I were writting the kmail pgp/gpg code too Compatibility is an issue. I'm a gnupg user. My friends are gnupg users. All works ok for me. But I'm a little worried about compatibilities between pgg-gnupg (or even gnupg-gnupg dif versions). I like the idea of not using any pattented algoritms in gnupg, but lets face it. Sometimes, some of us have to use them (one of my teachers uses pgp 2.x). and patching gnupg sources doesn't seem clear to me. Does gnupg support any kind of plugin mechanism?. If not, I think it would be a good idea (installing a plugin is easier than patching the sources for the average joe user) Cheers Pedro -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.4 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see iD8DBQE7Lk9Jnu53feEYxlERAvyaAJ0QUphpPe59DHKjiCdg4yuBBjUBlgCgmxgA V7PRL4v1HNIqmXvxBh6Q8DI= =TCIH -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
