Ok, I can live with that.

I just tried and it is possible to remove the boilerplate and keep
org-crypt/gpg working. Maybe org-crypt may filter it out. I'll how hard
is to add an option for that, it nobody beats me.

I was confused by a dialog that pops out on Kubuntu asking for a
passphrase. I thought that it was asking for authorization for using my
ssh key, but tried again and it accepts any text that I throw at it. On
Windows the passphrase is asked using the minibuffer. So it seems that
there is no issue here.

Well, with this and org-contacts, which I'm eager to try, I think I'll
finally start using org from git (sticking to some release tag, I guess)
although using the version distributed with Emacs is much more
convenient for those of us working on multiple machines.

Thanks for making org-mode even more useful.
