CURL might be a good way to get DNS keyserver support into GPG.
Simply add DNS functionality to CURL, according to my DNS URI spec:
And then it would work automatically. Or? Are the protocols that is
supported via CURL in GPG hard coded? I note that CURL support many
other protocols too. I would assume the situation is similar with
them. What I'm asking is: is it possible to retrieve OpenPGP keys
from, say, LDAP servers through the CURL support in GPG now?
This might be better than the gpgkeys_dns Perl script, which has a
dependency on Net::DNS that may not be widely available.
