RFC on issue 2701, default expiration time for new keys

inspired by the talk on OpenKeychain UX decisions at the OpenPGP
conference,  I decided that it is a bad idea to let users create keys
that don't expire (unless they want to hang themself with --expert).

This now begs the question what a good default expiration time is.
