Hi Ike --

For reasons I can't figure out, Thunderbird has totally mangled your
email so I'll reproduce the relevant parts here and reply.

I guess I do, by way of the fact that I keep myself running the latest
GPG-modern (2.1.2 as of now). I'll be excited when more make it over to
this side of the fence and I can start using my EC keys for real.

tedu@ has a "simple, semi-modern wannabe PGP clone" called reop. I think
it's in FreeBSD's ports tree.
Code is here: https://github.com/tedu/reop
Post about it: http://www.tedunangst.com/flak/post/reop
With that said, I only know about it. Not used it. Would be interested
in hearing Ted's thoughts on the current version of the code and future
directions (but no idea if he's on this list or reads it).
