The problem is that some mua's support only mime (RFC3156) mode (sylpheed,
evolution [?]), whereas others only know about openPGP (RFC2440, e.g.
pgp4pine). So IMHO it's an advantage that balsa knows about *both*. '3156
seems to be more safe from the mta's POV and more flexible, as it can
painlessly sign/encrypt multipart messages. However, *lots* of people in
the academic world still use pine, as its still usable from a terminal
over a bad ssh line, so this standard is far from being dead.
But I agree that such a button should *not* go into the identity panel, as
it's *recipient* dependant. And we (I?? My english is *very* bad!) should
write some words about it for the online help...

I can just say that's a *lot* of fun, in particular if there's positive
