Does this have to do with the fact that gpg is a separate program?
i.e., pgp can legally be run from within Mutt, even though it's not
GPLed, but this would not be so if (the hypothetical) libpgp was
linked in. Or is any hook OK?

Please excuse my ignorance, pointers to further explanation of this
issue would be appreciated.
