I don't have PGP, so i still don't know what the resultant file format is.

I did find this man page description (the X.509 certificate for the web
site is expired):


but it doesn't describe the structure of the archive.

could you send me (privately) one such archive with two small,
non-sensitive text files in it?

You can encrypt the archive to me using my key by fingerprint, after
first fetching it from the public keyservers:
