sorry for being naive but i would just like to clear
some things regarding preferences and cipher-algo
settings in the options file.

setpref would set your preferred cipher algorithms for
you public key, right? so others who would send you a
message would encrypt messages for you using the
preferred algorithms.

will putting "cipher-algo newcipher" on your
.gnupg/options file encrypt ALL messages using that
algorithm, regardless of what the public key prefers
you to use?
