IMO that would be a serious regression. I have several different spheres 
where I use PGP, and I use various different keyrings to make it easy to 
keep things up to date. I also use keyrings to keep the keys that have 
signed my key, keys that I've signed, etc.

I realize that my use is exceptional, and that the average gnupg user 
isn't going to have nearly as many separate keyrings as I do, but I'd 
hate to lose that capability.
