good question - i wasn't aware of pgg.  can you tell me more about it?
 i'd be very happy to find a single package that cleanly provides the
encryption interface that allout needs!

gentoo has an ebuild for it, but it involves xemacs dependencies,
making me think the build is xemacs-specific.  i gather, since you're
responding via the emacs-devel list, that it's available for the
mainline emacs - is that right?  google points me at only emacs-wiki
stuff (for a search on "emacs gpp") or xemacs-related stuff (for
"xemacs gpp")...
