Has there been any thought to GnuPG support an addressbook style of
looking up keys? Many of us have multiple keys out there, with no way of
distinguishing a particular key of mine (or someone else's) that I'd use
most often, without resorting to cheap hacks like environment variables.
It would be great if I could do something like
"gpg --list-keys mykey" where somehow "mykey" is aliased to something like
my key's fingerprint, 4F863BBBA8166F0A340F600356FFD10A260C4FA3.
Browsers, MUA's, and shells have their equivalent of addressbooks:
bookmarks for urls, addressbooks for email addys, and aliases for
commands, respectively. It's a good time to have our key-tracking
software to do the same.
