This is an excellent idea! But then GPG must look for the right keyring for
the right user ...
It would be very good be able to use different keyrings for different
users. What if one user would like his key on disk, but an other would like
it on un external USB-disk? It would be fine if it was possible to choose
keyring-paths individually by user!

A great idea! That would be very convenient for users. But would users take
care of them selves? Maybe it would be useful to have a link to some page
about trust on that page ...
Should anyone offering a distribution have the right to publish a link on
the GPG-site? Or should it be some means for qualification? I would be
happy if you put a link to my "simple tools ei batch-files" and what ever
that I will produce after that ...
