NO. At least I could not find it in the man pages. My memory
is hazy on this (going back over six years) but it seems like
PGP had an over-ride. If it did, then it violated the RFC.
Werner is correct. Do not use --textmode" if you want the
original mode for text files preserved. The default is
--no-textmode implying that is what should be used if you
want to preserve the EOR of the original files.
