This is an absurd argument. I'm done after this.

There's no clear mapping between NTFS and Unix permissions.

Whenever you get around to using it on the remote machine, which may

I was moving from PGP to PGP, and the configuration files are

unless you knew exactly which files were necessary, you'd feel
safest just copying them all... but all you really need to do is
export and import.)
