Start working with encrypted mails and slow smartcards on a regular base
and you would soon see what I mean.  Communicating with recipients with
some of them using --throw-keyids (i.e. lots of trial decryption) will
immediately show up what I mean.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
