pgp7 switch

Could someone please tell me what switches are implied by the pgp7
switch?  It doesn't seem to be documented anywhere yet.

What makes me curious is the fact that I can use gpg to create a
ciphertext with these attributes: dsa, idea, z0

PGP 6.5.8 (domestic) has a problem decrypting this.  It accepts my
password and doesn't report a problem; but no plaintext output.  It
just drops the ball.

Then PGP 6.5.1 (international) has no problem with this ciphertext.

When I throw the pgp7 switch, same result: pgp 6.5.8 fails, pgp 6.5.1i

Okay, so pgp 6.5.8 should not work w/ the pgp7 switch, and when I use
the pgp6 or pgp2 switch there is no problem (as expected).  

What I'm trying to figure out is why the older international version
CAN decrypt this; what's the difference?  I thought pgpi was just a
scanned version of pgp, so pgpi should be behind pgp.

(I'd also like to point out that pgp7 should be added to the man
