Per the recently posted stats for members of *this* list:
I'm using a recent version of the #3 mailer, which I would think qualifies as a "modern" GUI mailer. It presents PGP-MIME messages as an attachment with a format it doesn't know how to read. I'm no more interested in upgrading (or changing) my mailer to deal with *this* attachment type than I am in upgrading to deal with text/html attachments.
What part of "it is rude to expect all members of a large and diverse mailing list to accept and parse your particular attachment format" isn't perfectly clear?
Netiquette. It's been around a looooong time. You might try following it.
