Hi Marcel,

thanks for working on VKS support :)

Looks good to me, only remarks I have is you probably don't need to quote the
key id, and the "host" variable should be called "baseURI" or something, "if not
host.startswith("hkp"):" looks odd. On that last bit, checks like that should
always include the :, you don't want to match an "hkpkpkp" schema.

The "vks" schema is kind of an informal thing that comes from Enigmail.
I wonder if we should adopt it (slightly) more formally in our API docs.

python2 is EOL, and projects that still rely on it shouldn't invest development
time into anything other than fixing that.
