Do you have everyone's keys in your keyring to whom you are encrypting

you have everyone in your keyring and that you have signed their keys,

I've got to figure out a better way of doing this but to be honest I
have no idea what I can do.

Surely there is like a gpg api?  It can't all be done through a binary
can it?  If that *is* the only interface, then we are going to have to
open a dialogue with the program and try and talk to it (but that would
suck in the extreme).  At the very least we need a timeout to terminate
it and report what it said to us, we cannot have it just hang.

Currently there *is* only a binary :-(
I think Werner Koch is working on a library called GpgMe, but that will
only cover GnuPG and not PGP 2.6.x, PGP 5.0, or PGP 6.5.x.

I agree, we do need a timeout or something. I'm working on that code
right now (or was a little last week as I started to migrate it over to
Camel). Once we get 0.10 out thedoor, I'll look into it more seriously.

I wonder if we can add CamelCanecellation stuff to it? I haven't really
looked at how the cancel stuff works but it might be an idea.
