How to verify the file was successfully encrypted...

This might be a hard one.
When you encrypt to a public key, there is no way gpg
can decrypt it, to verify that it can be decrypted,
unless it can unlock the private key with your password.

The only way i see, is that gpg would have to encrypt 2 times
and compare the results. But then again, the same error might
happen twice.

Does this make any sense?
i don't know, this was just what im thinking.
