I bet that this will immediately start a discussion on a v5 key format
to fix this problem for “all” time. And obviously the suggestion will
then be to show the full, then, SHA-256 fingerprint.
Frontends should handle this problem. For example they could show all
matching keys after a decryption problem. Hiding the keyID from the
user would even be better - the mail address should be sufficient for
99% of all users. For the experts, a “Details” button can show all the
glory details of the key.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
