unless it's an ancient version of PGP(tm) it should auto-magically handle
other algorithms. from the OpenPGP spec:
   Implementations MUST implement Triple-DES. Implementations SHOULD
   implement IDEA and CAST5. Implementations MAY implement any other

IDEA is the *only* symmetric algorithm mentioned in the spec that gpg
doesn't handle "out of the box." you can use: 3DES (168), CAST5 (128),
blowfish (128), AES-128, AES-192, AES-256, twofish (256).
