Maybe I just have not correctly understood the "include-revoked"
man gpg says
When searching for a key with --search-keys, include keys that are
marked on the keyserver as revoked. Note that this option is always
set when using the NAI HKP keyserver, as this keyserver does not
differentiate between revoked and unrevoked keys."
So "include-revoked" does only effect --search-keys whereas --recv-key
always fetches a revoked key, not matter if "include-revoked" is given
or not. Hm.
