Following up on this, it's fairly common for people to add email headers
with information that can be used to fetch a public key. For example,
all of the emails I send using Mutt include this header:

    X-PGP-Key: https://www.codevat.com/pgp.asc#0x8DDDE2E6053692AB

There are some other variants of this header like "OpenPGP: ...", and
"PGP-Key: ..." I thought X-PGP-Key was supposed to become the standard,
but I just read an IETF draft
and it looks like "OpenPGP" is what you _should_ use, so I will probably
change mine after I do some more research.
