I'm not sure I understand this completely. There is going to be a
central database where each key can have meta-data that (potentially)
tells GnuPG that the key is actually located somewhere else - such as on
So the database's key entry itself would be simply a stub - placeholder
data to indicate that GnuPG needs to retrieve the key from elsewhere?
