I don't recall the original mail, but in general I would like to avoid
new top-level options for keyserver functions, especially as there is
a more specific place to put them.

The idea itself seems reasonable.  I'd just rather see it as (for
example) "--keyserver-options http-proxy=foo.bar".  I can put it on
the list for 1.3.x if you like.
