Indeed, a whole lot of keys.  It might be more useful to pick a person
you are trying to make a connection to and just fetch the keys along
that path.  I've often thought that a clever keyserver could do that
(i.e. download the keys that form the shortest trust path between two
keys).  Wotsap and are 80% of the way there
