i tried this once many versions ago,
and developed a registry bug, and gnupg would not work correctly

i don't remember the details,
but think that the problem file was
<gnupg-w32.reg> in the 1.2.x tht was not present in the Nullify version

also, i *need* IDEA, as my oldest key, is a pgp2.x v3 key,
and is still the only some that some pgp2.x  users trust,

the 1.2.5 doesn't have the IDEA module and library,
and trying to just copy the whole thing into c:\gnupg
before un-installing the Nullify build, causes problems

(but it's been a long time since i did it that way, so am not sure)
