Nice idea, but completely impractical, since a lot of people read the
linux mailing lists from work. Many companies have a policy of not
allowing external software (and PGP falls into this category) to be
loaded onto the corporate network, so you'd be preventing a large
number of people from reading the lists altogether :-(
