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.
