OK, I got it. Auto-key-retrieve controls fetching keys from a
keyserver to verify a signature, and auto-key-locate controls fetching
keys from a server to encrypt to an email address that doesn't match
any keys on your keyring.
Is there a reason you can only automatically query one keyserver for a
key to verify a signature, but multiple keyservers for a key to
encrypt to an email address?
