Yes. PGP is a lot more than just a string encryption method, it includes
the whole process of signing, sealing and packaging. It's quite
extensive with a lot of code so porting the whole thing to MI would be a
significant task. Plus, I'm not sure if that type of port is permitted -
although the code is available to the public there are restrictions on
what you can do with it especially since there are different "owners" of
different pieces and you also have the whole "personal non commercial
use" thing.
