That's an interesting project!

I believe this could work in a public key architecture - the symmetric key would be sent using GPG beforehand, symmetric key used later.

There's Paroli in its early stages of development, needing developers, I guess they should be asked whether someone wants to implement this. I have more or less the same problem - not having enough time to do everything I would like to. But if there's enough people wanting to implement this (as a part of paroli or anything else), I will switch my priorities to be able to help.
