Since there is a 'Lost my key' thread every few weeks: perhaps gpg should b=
* generate a revocation cert when it generates a new key (put it in a=20
<keyid>.rev file or so)
* print lengthy explanations about 'the key can not, under no circumstance=
be deleted from the keyservers. Really. We mean it. You can ask in the=20
mailing lists, we will tell you this again.'
Of course these features could be disabled by use of the=20
(Yes, this is really a feature that should be offered by the user friendly =
keymangaer app that users should use - but I guess the majority of new user=
today starts out by using gpg from the commandline.)
No good deed goes unpunished.
