Or... GnuPG should follow the lead of PGP and not add the Comment header
unless one is defined by the User. Much simpler that way, and avoids
having to issue the warning about the invalid armour header.

The RFC doesn't seem to clearly define what is allowed or what isn't,
but IMHO it would be easier to simply not add the Header unless defined
by the User.
