ObenPGP has a flag defined that only the holder of a key is allowed to
upload the key to a keyserver and GnuPG sets this flag. However, the
HKP Server (pgp.net) do not have a way to check it.
Pretty nice DoS: Create some hundred keys with a friends name and
uplod them to the servers. If someone wnats to get your firends key
he will have some problems to figure out the right one.
