There is a pretty difficult workaround, using gpgsplit and standard
Linux command-line tools. However, I get the sense you're not really
looking for difficult workarounds :-). If I'm wrong about that, just say
so and I'll give an example. I'll whip out a blank OpenPGP card, create
a test key and do it, posting the results on the list.



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
