There is an old FIXME in the code which needs to be removed:
/* FIXME: Store this all in a list and process it later so that
we can prioritize what key to use. This gives a better user
experience if wildcard keyids are used. */
I like your suggestion of also looking at the creation date and key size
as further sort parameters.
I don't think that --throw-keyid is a useful thing for use of gpg
in mails - it does not really help in this use case because that meta
data is easier available by other means. But if people start using this
more we need a solution.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
