Better use GnuPG-2 which uses a values suitable for the machines on
which you generated the key or change the passphrase. (i.e. 100ms)

Why?  I doubt that those who suggest that have a lot of experience in
selecting algorithms.

Okay, if you feel that your old GnuPG version benefits from this.

May break compatibility because it overrides the preference system.

Do what ever you like here.  But why preferring ZLIB over BZIP2?



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
