OK thanks, I hadn't thought of that. I'd still have to decrypt and re-encrypt
them to keep hashes of all plaintext versions of the files though. (Thinking
about running this script every few days and hashing the latest files pulled
from the IMAP server; it'd be far easier just to find any files not ending in
".gpg" to hash.)
