The public keyblock as explained in RFC4880?

NB: I'm using the term keyblock rather than public key as to not mix
protocol specific metadata and cryptographic matters. The public
keyblock contains more data than the public key, including UID/UATs and
subkeys that are on their own consisting of multiple public keys in a
cryptographic context.
