Good point. How about:
List algorithms in the order in which you'd like to see them used by
someone else when encrypting a message to you. If you don't include
3DES, GPG will add it automatically at the end. Note that there are
many factors that go into choosing an algorithm (for example, you may
not be the only recipient), and so the remote OpenPGP application
being used to send to you may or may not follow your exact chosen
order for a given message. However, it will only ever choose an
algorithm that is on the list of every recipient key. See also the
