I'd argue that if you believe that signing all your list mail serves
the purpose of encouraging signed messaging, a superior way of life,
then using PGP/MIME signing rather than "old-school" signing serves the
analogous purpose of encouraging a superior form of signing, and should
be equally respected.
A lot of mail clients still don't cope with *any* pgp signing format,
but that doesn't stop you from using one. Why should Mailer X's not
supporting PGP/MIME stop people from using that style?
Interoperability, you say? S/MIME, I reply.
