A question regarding gnupg and passphrases...

I have been lurking in this group for a while now, and have been using
gnupg for a while, as well.
My question is this: When I symmetrically encrypt something with
"gpg -c" it will allow me to enter only one passphrase. However, when I
decrypt the same thing, with the same passphrase, it has a line that
says "Encrypted with 1 passphrase". This implies that it is possible to
use more than one passphrase when encrypting. Does anyone know if this
is true? Or if it is a future plan? If it is possible, could someone
give me an idea of how to do it?
By the way, I looked over all of the documentation on the site, and it
does not seem to mention multiple passphrases, nor does the man page.
