I was just suggesting a way to store the xml representation, as you 
thought. I should have been more clear in this regard. Sorry. 
    I think we have two options:
    1. Shelve the DOM (will this work, can it be pickled? I haven't 
        about this? Hmm...)
    2. Shelve the XML string. This will probably require extra steps 
of DOM to
        string conversion, which is bad.

Can you elaborate? (sorry, I'm slow :-) What is a PGP library? Or just 
point me to a place to look up more info...
