use 8 (eight) as it's the next one in line.

Comments? Discussion?


I dont know about NAI, but from what Werner has said on the GPG list he
intends to remove Blowfish, which makes sense, I dont know about anyone
else but I have yet to see anyone use Blowfish, so why not just pretend it
was not there and just go with twofish?  after AES is done, it surely will
have been proven.
