except for Disastry's versions of 2.6.3
no PGP version can either decrypt or generate a throw-keyid message

{have tried to beg for an implementation of this,
Disastry was the only one who listened}

a pgp user, who for whatever reason, isn't using gnupg,
might be able to work around it with a hex editor, and write a script
to insert the id's of his own keys, and let pgp try each one ...

but anyone capable of doing that, is probably already using gnupg ;-)
