The first piece of signed code I ever got was MacPGP 2.6.2.  I like the
idea of detached signatures on executable files.  One use I can see is
signing every executable on your system and storing the signatures
separately.  Then you can periodically check the system for altered code.
(Too bad Mac code normally alters itself.)

How do armor and MIME compare in their support of this application?

You don't need either one for that functionality. Binary is quite ok.

And as both do nearly exactly the same thing, you could easily use both.
