Meh. Most people I deal with don't even know of the problems with
things like pgp.mit.edu. What has actually been tried?
Suggestion for gpg:
WARNING: you are using keyserver "pgp.mit.edu" which is broken
WARNING: reason: does not accept subkey updates
WARNING: result: keys appear invalid because correct updates not received
Default list of keyservers to whine about, gpg.conf option to hush up
the warning for a particular keyserver -- the goal being to persuade,
not coerce. And besides, pgp.mit.edu might someday be updated and stop
being a blight and this would let people use it.
