No one is asking (at least not on this thread) to be able to send in-line PGP - all that's being requested is that I be able to respond to messages sent by mailers that do, without having to do some arbitrary cut-and-paste dance to quote in the reply.
To summarise: Evolution is not broken, the other mailers are.
