Six of one, half dozen of another. I think it's generally for the best
if people use names, since they're easier to read and harder to screw up.

This is not really possible with GnuPG. setpref is used to advertise
_capabilities_ to people far more than it is to advertise preferences.
It appears to me to be badly misnamed.
personal-thingy-preferences are the actual preference list, but is only
applied to traffic you generate.
