I have not said this ;-).  I have two problems with the patch:

 - It is very specific for keyservers and not a general way to describe,
   well, what keyservers are.  We already have ways to locate keys from
   remote resources.  See the GPGME_KEYLIST_MODE_* flags.  This needs to
   be unified with other uses of the keys.  And it also needs to be in
   line with planned or already done changes in 2.1.

 - You break the ABI and API with your patch - this is not acceptable
   for a stable library.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
