Before deleting original file, I must make certain encrypted version is
in good shape so I can open it at a later date and obtain data.  If it
is broken, I'm in deep monkey muffins.  That's the threat model.

Can you please explain what you mean by "check the gpg's rc after the
encryption run?"  I'm unfamilar with the meaning of "rc" in this case.
