I am buy no measure an encryption expert, and I don't presume all
communications could or should be encrypted, just whevever and wherever

re: "participants strongly controlled"
If you have my personal public key, messages encrypted to me can practicly

, rubber hose decryption notwithstanding, it's a [for your eyes only]
I don't know how I would implement this on a many to many communication,
I think you need to establish a trust model

I co-developed a PGP- Blowfish based IRC Chat client that works well on any
IRC network in a one to many model.
