This is just a suggestion for enhancement.

It would be very nice if the last outgoing encryption state was
remembered per-buddy. So when I open a new window to that user, it
starts with the encryption on if it was on last time I spoke to them.

Obviously the default should still be disabled so you don't start
requesting keys from new contacts who don't have the plugin.

    Try the "Auto-Encrypt" option: right-click on your buddy's
    name in the Buddy list. I think it does largely what you
    want. It isn't as automatic, but I suspect that some users
    would not want the plugin to auto-remember the state, so the
    more manual control can be a good thing.

    Thanks, that's great. I don't know if it's just me, but I
    didn't expect a plugin to add an option there.

    Some kind of alert when the plugin's first used, such as a
    pop up window, letting you know that the auto-encrypt
    facility is there, would benefit greatly.
