    DU> How about prefixing 'gnupg' (same length as 'crypt')

    Do we want to make the dependency on GPG so explicit?

It is unlikely we will ever replace GnuPG with some other program;
probably "encrypting mail" in GNU will always mean using GnuPG.  But
even if that is so, `crypt' is a better name for this purpose because
it is closer to the way users think about what they want to do.

A user's first thought about this is not "I want to do GnuPG on this
message" but rather "I want to encrypt this message."
