This discussion is interesting, but regarding encryption, I think
that both approaches can be supported. As I use thumbpdf and it
makes use of the "no-so-proper" approach, it was important for me
to do so.

The update of 31/03/2001 in <ftp://bioinf.medicina.uniovi.es/pub>
should work with both, but some real tests would be necessary.
