I never complain too badly about free software authors being slow
on volunteer work. Hardly seems fair.

Did you say you were planning on doing cryptographic verificaiton
of signatures/etc on the inbound keys? Seems very useful, although
it would chew a lot of cpu.

_Please_ make sure to include the email sync protocol. I can't use
it otherwise, as I _must_ keep in sync with the current network.

Also, for future versions, LDAP support would be great. I'd put
that off until the rest is stable, though. The NAI keyserver prefers
to receive pushes via LDAP, and isn't particularly good with the 
email thing. I actually have a script now that pushes to
once daily via http posts.

Export as well. :)

Let me know... I'll run a beta of this as soon as it is reasonably useful.
