I see this differently: we had a security problem in gnupg, which we
fixed. This unfortunately broke the version of mailcrypt that was
was in contrib, so not even a proper part of the Debian potato
release itself. Its maintainer did upload a new version of mailcrypt
to fix that problem which you can grab from proposed-updates until
the next stable revision.
Installing mailcrypt on security.debian.org would immediately suggest
that mailcrypt itself has a security problem, which is not true.
It's a bit of a catch 22.
