Research would definitely be helpful. There are many well written guides, video
tutorials, and even e-learning courses on how to setup GPG however, and some
applications make it very easy.

While technical complexity is undoubtedly a problem, a huge number of
technically proficient people are not using GPG simply because they aren't aware
of its existence or importance. At least, that's what my own experiences tell me.

I'd like to explore this off-list; sounds like you've got some interesting ideas.
