Nope.  GnuPG-2 does not support loading of extensions.  the option is a
dummy option.  The reason for this is that crypto operations are done by
Libgcrypt and not by gpg.exe.

The next version of Libgcrypt will support IDEA and thus GnuPG 2.1 will
be able to decrypt old (i.e. PGP 2) files, directly.  However, using
IDEA is not a good idea, we have far better algorithms for ages.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
