The long term idea is to have an abstract interface in gpg, for example
"gpg --publish" which takes care of publishing a key. In the meantime
gpg-wks-client can be used on _standard_ Unix boxes; there is a man page
but the real problem is that on Windows and, according to what I have
heard, the standard sendmail wrapper is not anymore installed by default
on Linux boxes. Thus the only way to send an email is by using a MUA
that supports publishing a key (Kmail and Enigmail right now)

Python is usually not available on Windows. For Unix we could do a
standard script but that is not really better than the existing client.

It is available for all platforms, whether a distro installs it is not

Does not work because we can't send mail from the command line.

It is possible to do this for GpgOL. Kleopatra needs a MUA.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
