[ i never make mistakes.  and pigs fly ]

one analog which worries me is muas which decide whether to encrypt
outbound depending on whether the inbound was encrypted.  if i do not
pay attention when responding, and i add confidential information in my
response.  if the inbound was not encrypted, my mua is not gonna encrypt
the reply by default.
