Again: Please do not use this cipher for anything other than pure
interop testing.  The identifier assigned to Camellia may still be
changed and it would render all your messages unreadable with future
versions.  And we even don't know for sure whether the IETF will accept
David's Camellia for OpenPGP draft.

I also wonder why so many people are interested in it.  The sole purpose
of including Camellia is for Japanese governmet requirements. This is
much the same as we would have to disable Camellia for stuff to be sold
to the US government.  These are no technical or cryptograhical reasons,
but plain political/organizational.
