No, they won't. My employer is still waiting for an FSF copyright
assignment contract which is compatible with German law.
Werner is working on a different solution which protects the secret
keys in a better way. However, I hope that some additional checks are
introduced as well because they prevent GnuPG from revealing the
secret key due to a computation error (which is perhaps the result of
a single flipped bit).
