Speading WKD: Adding WKD sending for password resets/reminders

quite a few software package use email as a way to confirm an account or a 
password reset. Sometimes this even has a temporary password or pin.

With WKD there is a good pubkey to just automatically encrypt.
So if we build this into package, like Mailman, WKD users will get some extra 
benefit. Okay, it is just a little bit of extra security, but why not?

(An idea coming up at the Intevation lunch table. ;) )
