hi GnuPG folks--
I have a large keyring with 2.5K OpenPGP keys in it.
With GnuPG 2.0.x and 1.4.x, i am able to refresh the whole thing with:
with 2.1.0, that command produces this error:
gpg: refreshing 2532 keys from hkp://keys.gnupg.net
gpg: keyserver refresh failed: Too many objects
I could use a tool like parcimonie  to refresh them one at a time, in
the background, but that takes even longer. in some contexts, it would
be nice to just have a single, full refresh happen as fast as possible.
Is there a recommended way to refresh all the keys from a large keyring
like this, or at least to conveniently chunk the requests into an
acceptable number of objects at a time?
