`dirtypgp' is a `quick-and-dirty' wish
script to run in a X Window environment. It is a `workslate'
upon which `clear' or `cipher' text may be cut and pasted.

email if you're interested.
- A `pwslate' -- password slate -- companion package, keeping a flat,
encrypted table with: hostname, userid,
password, and hint1, ... hintN
columns, would be useful. Owl River will host the extension project,
if someone will take a shot at the coding.
- cringe -- Maybe we'll port it to a Win32 environment.
