BBDB 3.1 has pgp support included.

It is not intentional to omit this code. I simply have not yet looked into bbdb-pgp.el. So I do not yet know either what would be a suitably updated version. (This code dates back to 1997 / 1999 and it requires mailcrypt, which is by itself rather old code. I believe that recent versions of GNU Emacs use suitable replacements for mailcrypt.)

The original version of bbdb came with a contrib module that enabled support for automatic email encryption when corresponding with people who had "pgp-mail: encrypt" set in the database. It appears that support for this feature has been dropped in BBDBv3? Is that intentional?
