i was thinking along the same lines, for ideological reasons. i'm leaning
towards "OpenPGP" (or "Open-PGP"). as much as i happen to be partial
towards a particular implementation (GnuPG), the goal should be
compatibility and communication, *not* some subtle (and confusing, to
some) attempt to be a cheerleader for a particular implementation.

you'll be credited $0.015, after inflation ;)
