I might do that if I get further along. I want to be able to have partial
OpenPGP implementations that only bother with new-style headers. Such
implementations' ouput can be read by gpg, but there's currently no way to
convince gpg to talk to them :)
My own implementations currently do support both kinds of headers, so it's
not a pressing need.
