depends what the intended goal of said software is:

1/ winning a battle in the 1st cryptowars to make crypto exportable? i think
it brilliantly succeeded at this design goal.
2/ making cryptograms stand out as strong selectors thanks to all this juicy
plaintext metadata in the openpgp packet as defined per rfc4880. again, a
smashing success.

maybe if your usecase is not covered by the above two, maybe you should be
looking for another solution. people-with-hammers ;)
