Although I usually get a wide range of responses, is there any
practical advice an end-user should take away from the recent AES256
attacks as described
 Should I continue to use AES256 (double AES) or default to single AES
or simply default back to 3DES, or just sit tight?  Although I found
the article interesting (not sure if I understood a lot of the blog
comments), is there any practical advice I should take away from it as
it relates to GnuPG?
