Another thing worth adding to your HOWTO is that if the LDAP server is
going to be publically available, a good name to use is
"keys.(yourdomain)".  The reason for this is that both PGP and GnuPG
(as of 1.4.3) can automatically locate keys using that name.  For
example, let's say I want to encrypt a message to joe at, but
I have no joe at key.  GnuPG can automatically ask
ldap:// for joe at and import it.
