Speaking of which - I occasionally ask this out of some sort of grim 
hope that the situation will have changed but I want to be able to do 
something like

	my $mail = get_encrypted_and_signed_mail();

	$mail->is_signed($alices_public_key) || die "Erk!\n";
	my $decrypted = $mail->decrypt($my_private_key);

	my $new_mail = $decrypted->encrypt($bobs_public_key);

That is - can I use PGP from within Perl without having to dick around 
with keychains and key ids?

If not - is there some (good) reason for this and am I being quaintly
