Nothing is trivial if you find yourself banging your head on a problem to which
you have no immediate answer.  Here's the immediate answer:

	pgp -sta +clearsig=on message.txt

user agent to invoke this command upon exiting your default message editor,
with "message.txt" set to whatever your editor calls the temporary message

Hmmm... you might find talk.politics.crypto interesting, too.
