    rijndael (all) , and blowfish (128)
    are already in gnupg, and have been for many versions

    would like to see serpent included
    (have been using it in truecrypt, and don't find it 'slow'
    at all,
    [but then, i'm an old 3des fan, so anything else is faster
    ;-)],
    and eventually, when truecrypt allows decryption of a container
    with a key, it would be nice to have,
    although they have a quite 'good enough' selection now)


    am not familiar with skipjack or kea
    or any particular advantage that they would offer

    (serpent is considered to be very 'solid' but slower than
    rijndael)

    at his point, though,
    it would probably need to be a decision by the open pgp group
    to adopt it,
    before gnupg would unilaterally include it,

    and unless they find some great 'must have' quality,
    it probably 'won't be included any time soon ;-(
