I've emailed Jens B. Jorgensen, the author of pgpmsg.py. He's seems to 
think the module is quite stable and he hasn't updated it simply because 
there hasn't been a need. He thinks the module is fairly complete as far 
as the standard goes. That said, I doubt its had a lot of real-world use.

I'm going to test it with as many keys as I can find and if that works 
out then I'll go with it.

Jens is happy for pgpmsg.py to be included with yum.
