The attacker performing large-scale traffic uses his own software that
is - so it must be presumed - capable of distilling all (to him)
usefull information from the flow of messages. Consequently, the
question should not be what pgpdump will or will not produce, the
question should be what information is or is not contained in the
message previous to its decryption.
