This does not work yet because this may yield many keys and some interactive sesion would be needed. Th easiest way to handle it is by using HTTP, e.g. lynx and then fillout the form presented; you can also get this form and store it on your local machine. Select then one key, store it in a file (using the 'p' menu of lynx) and thena run gpg --import on this file. I clever way to handle this easier is by extending Lynx's p menu to pipe the data to gpg. -- Werner Koch at keyid 621CC013
