PGP interoperability

Looking over the PGP product offerings after their acquisition by
Symantec, it seems they have dropped support for 2048- and 3072-bit DSA.
 This decision makes no sense to me, and is sufficiently weird that I
wonder if the marketing copy is horribly in error.  However, the
marketing copy is clear -- across the whole of the PGP product line,
DSA2 is no longer supported.  Check the following URLs, click on "System
Requirements," and take a look at the "Public Key Algorithms."  For each
product they offer:

	* Diffie-Hellman
	* DSA (1024-bit keys only)
	* RSA (up to 4096-bit keys)
