Looks like an interesting option. But does it really work? I just played 
with it a bit. I encrypted a file like this:

gpg --use-embedded-filename="GnuPG-Manual.ps" -e -r 0x83171b57 

After encrypting I renamed it: "mv GnuPG-Manual.ps.gpg test.gpg".

Now, since the file name is embedded "gpg test.gpg" should revover 
"GnuPG-Manual.ps", right? No it doesn't, the result is "test"! So 
embedding the file just did nothing, or have I misunderstood the 
purpose of --use-embedde-filename?
