Only if you pay for it. :-)

I just checked the source of pgp 2.3a, the last version before political nonsense started adding deliberate incompatibilities. This version is under the GPL, but I can't find any additional restrictions. The doc's don't say it's not allowed to export it from the USA, only that one should not ask PRZ for a copy. BTW, what are the security issues that pgp 2 suffers and gnupg solves? The only one I can think of is the usage of secure memory. -- ir. J.C.A.
