Yes, and me too.  Someone sent me a package that relied upon reconfiguring 
Pine using the alternate editor option as a hook and it has never worked 
well.  This is important.  I am trying to convince my co-workers to start 
using PGP regularly and an easy interface may not be one of the best 
arguments to make (for encrypting regularly) but it's one that works on 
lots of people.
