I heard yesterday from a WinPT support person that gpg4win is dropping
WinPT.  I'd like to get a response on this claim from gpg4win, but I
cannot find where to ask about this statement from WinPT.

WinPT is a far superior and a much more powerful and a much cleaner
looking application than any other windows front-end for gpg.

How can gpg4win think that WinPT is not an excellent tool to keep in
the gpg4win package?  Are there technical issues with adding WinPT
1.4.0 to gpg4win package?

I understand that gpa is a logical inclusion for gpg4win in the
outside chance that a Windows user is going to be visiting a Gnome
Desktop and be forced to use gpa there, and so Windows users should be
familiar with using gpa... a tool that doesn't support many of the
features of a gpg public key (like the image feature).

Yet dropping WinPT is just ridiculous without some major compatibility
issue.  WinPT is an awesome tool, far more flexible and easy-to-use
that other gpg front-end.
