I have installed "No Gnus v0.11" and it seem to work fine.
My emacs version is:

| GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.14.7)
|  of 2009-01-26 on tux

I have also enabled gpg-agent to avoid beeing prompted many time.
I start it with keychain.
(epa should have a time-out to cache passphrase, but i didn't find it)

In my config, i use variables that are not supported by the authinfo
scheme (e.g emms-lastfm...) so i fetch the login/password like that:
(don't call gpg one time for user and one time for password)

| (setq emms-lastfm-user-pwd
|       (auth-source-user-or-password  '("login" "password")
|                                      ""
|                                      "http"))
| (setq emms-lastfm-username (car emms-lastfm-user-pwd))
| (setq emms-lastfm-password (cadr emms-lastfm-user-pwd))

The same for anything-delicious.el that use actually curl and wget to

So now when i start emacs, i am prompted only once for gpg
passphrase. :)
