That was completely uninformed speculation on my part.

But I still think that like any new standard and technology, even after
ECC makes it into an official gnupg release, it'll probably be years
before you'll be able to use it on a general purpose key, due to any
number of systems or users that won't instantly support ECC in OpenPGP.

That was really my main point.
