There are other implementations using OpenPGP as well.  For embedded
systems adding another MUST cipher is a problem, in particular if 3DES
is already done in (old) hardware.  There might also be the need to
implement the preferences system unless both, 3DES and AES, are
declared as fallback algorithms.
