I did some work on a DNS based client earlier,
<>, but I'm not sure how well it
works today.

But writing a gpgkeys_dns.c using res_query should not be difficult.
Would you accept it if I wrote it?  Could be a fun Christmas

Sadly there is no easily available C libraries for dynamic update, so
sending keys to DNS keyservers is more difficult to implement in C.

Can gpg use the keyserver infrastructure for revocation checking?
