I guess this should be generalized:
- a list of keys to ignore in the pathfinder (perhaps with an easy way to=
include often-ignored keys)
- an option to have it not stop at the first path, but to output all paths=
to length n+x, where x is user defined and n is the length of the shortest=
path between the keys.
I think the second one would be especially good, since if you get more path=
you can get a better estimate whether to trust that key, and also the=20
likelyhood increases that you actually find a path where you already trust=
all the people.
