Re: [PLUG] What's smime.p7s? (Was: Ginger)

Arguably, X.509 is nicer,

There are advantages and disadvantages to both X.509 and PGP - both technically as well as "user experience".

since it can be used both for ssh public keys and for signatures.

That wouldn't have been on my list since I most users don't need a permanent SSH/SSL key.
