The advantage of Colin's approach is that gpg requires out of band exchange
of gpg keys separately from ssh keys. If you already have ssh keys
distributed (which might be in an automated environment for instance),
it would be very useful.

Of course if you already have gpg keys set up and exchanged, gpg
would be just fine.
