I'd like to ring in my agreement with Gordon.

I'm excited and completely pleased with the progress being
made with gpg.  I'm pleased with the third party implementations.
Some of them have nearly obtained official release status.  I'm
more interested in seeing more progress with the WinPT and
similar front ends than with seeing an official MingW32 release.
And I'd like to see the gpg team freed to focus attention on the
important issues.  Applying pressure on the gpg team to focus
on 1.0.7/MingW32 is counterproductive considering the
proliferation of fine third party releases.
