I'll bet. Fortunately, there are decent Windows front-ends for
mail-related tasks like Enigmail. Not much for file-related tasks,

I would definitely be happy if the GPG binary was packaged separately:
I almost never use GPA or other GUI tools that come with the package.

Thanks for the reminder regarding donations: I really should chip in a
bit more this year.
