More control over what's happening -- which can be a good or a bad thing, as
it also takes more work to get things done. It's really that OpenSSL and GPG
were made for different purposes and I think you're stretching GPG very far
if you want to encrypt big streams of data. That's more something OpenSSL
was made for.
