In the MAN entry for " --openpgp ":
  "Reset all packet, cipher and digest options to OpenPGP
  behavior.  [...]  All PGP workarounds are also disabled."

What PGP workarounds are there, other than the explicit
rfc1991, compress-algo, etc., user options?

That is, is the command " gpg --no-options " somehow
different from " gpg --no-options  --openpgp "?
