Sure.  I have started with this in gpg 1.1 but due to urgend
requirement in the stable version, I can't tell wyou when this is

I am currently trying to get the key selection stuff in 1.0 right.
There is new code (actually backported from 1.1) in the CVS but it
has only passed the most basic tests yet.

I'd really like to start working on 1.1 again but before that 1.0.5
has to be released.
