  Thanks for the answers. I am a bit confused about if I should use
names like aes256 or codes like S9. Also, do I have to include all the
cipher/digest/compress algorithms available to my installed gpg, or just
  one or two? The idea would be "if you can, use this one, if not, do as
you wish/can"

  Also, I couldn't locate the list of equivalences between names and
codes, like AES256 - S9 in the gpg.man file... I found a list using
google, but it is for an older version, which didn't include all the
things available in version 1.4.9...
