That's an entertaining possibility.  The implication being that a mail
program that could handle all the possibilities would require me
keeping copies of pgp2 and 5, along with a new OP compliant program, and
the mail program would have to be written to deal with them all.  Am I
the only one who thinks this is nuts?  

Five messages ago there was a rant about pgp 5 breaking
interoperability with pgp2.  Now we are talking about an OP that won't
be interoperable with with either.
