US banks that can send PGP/MIME e-mail

Well, there is a way to find out whether it works.  Those who care
deeply about this should get together, raise some capital, and open
NerdBank(tm) where they can do business their way, and see how it
goes.  There's plenty of room right now for people who want to
reimagine the retail banking business, so long as they still keep
depositors' money safe and deal it out as ordered.

I'm actually more interested in the local bank as portal to
certificate services.  Actually going physically to the issuer and
presenting, face-to-face, identifying documents that might actually be
slightly difficult to steal or forge, is not something that most
people can realistically do with the current crop of CAs.
Long-distance relationships in the security realm make trust
difficult, in both directions.

None of this has a great deal to do with OpenPGP or GnuPG as such.
