1.  Polemics much?

2.  Was there a particular part of "Those were real-world concerns all
along" you failed to understand the first time?

I'm a sysadmin.  I can't count how many times somebody, often a
collegiate type, came to me with a dumbass idea he imagined looked good
on (virtual) paper.  My reaction tends to be, as in this case, "So, how
did your pilot project turn out?"

> No matter.

Quite so.  My point exactly.

> Let us address your concerns as they are. 

Yes, what about that?  I assume your attached results of performance and
usability studies, using either GnuPG or <chuckle> any other OpenPGP

tragically lost in transmission.
