Wish: --recv-signers-of

Occasionally, it's practical to batch-fetch all keys which have 
signed a certain other public key, in order to look whether you can 
find some well-authenticated keys of trustworthy individuals there.

Of course, this can be easily automated like this:

	gpg --check-sigs <some-id> | awk '/^sig/ { print $2 }' | \
		sort -u > k
	gpg --recv-keys `cat k`

But still, a gnupg option to do this without resorting to the shell 
could be quite practical.
