Because many of us out here are using GPG as a poor-man's secure FTP. I use
it because my company won't pay $60 to a 'non-preffered' vendor for the S/W,
and says $2000 from the "preferred" vendor is too expensive.

I do I have it working for the OUTGOING side of the transaction, but not for
the incoming.
