Because the function software, SKS, requires a somewhat obscure
build and runtime environment, which makes it difficult for people
who don't know the (also obscure) programming language in question
to audit it, which makes it questionable, in certain people's eyes,
in a security application.

Why jharris's patches for the much more common (and written in a
commonly used language) PKS haven't been applied to the main source
tree there would be a question for the maintainers of that keyserver
