It would be nice to have PGP/GPG support for Jabber messages for signing/encrypting in addition to OTR, as defined in XEP-0027.

This is implemented by some clients like Gajim, Psi or (with plugins) Pidgin.

Maybe I'll implement that when I have some spare time, if it's not too hard.

(also, wtf @ priority "pony")

Well, I'm certainly not going to work on this, and I doubt anyone else will.

Consider this a "soft" wontfix, not going to reject patches if they ever appear.

PGP has some "advantages" to OTR mostly due to the lack of forward secrecy (i mean stuff like the possibility of decrypting the same message from several devices), but it's not recommended by the XSF and I don't see myself actually spending time on this.
