No, you can use it for all three modes (sign, encrypt sign+encrypt). In this context inline=traditional. The user that prompted this change had the same misunderstanding, which is why I was trying to clarify what the 'i' key does.
Would this be better? PGP (e)ncrypt, (s)ign, sign (a)s, (b)oth, use %s format, or (c)lear?You could remove "use".
Ok, that is fine with me as well.
BTW, perhaps the inline / PGP/MIME switch could be removed. The manual says: Also note that using the old-style PGP message format is strongly deprecated. (PGP only) So, an option could be sufficient for users who really need it (possibly better with send-hook).
My guess is that this is a common enough conversion that it would be a big usability issue for mutt users. I am inclined to leave the functionality there.
