I thought all discussions about this were kept on the mailing list?  Maybe
check the ding list, perhaps emacs-devel was removed at some point.

I think we decided to back out Daiki's asynchronous interface, because it
is too much new code and we need to have people use it for a while and
work out the problems (on the Gnus CVS trunk).  Perhaps Romain backed out
more than that?  I think we should revert to the pgg-gpg.el right before
adding Daiki's partial rewrite.  The symmetric stuff, and the more recent
addition of the pgg-gpg-use-agent variable should be fine.

I don't have a workable internet connection, and I'm going away on holiday
tomorrow, so I hope others can help work out the details, or wait 10 days.
