Actually gpg updates expired keys via WKD. However, to not break things
and not to go out and do a query on the mail domain, this is only done
if the key has originally been fetched via WKD.
That turned out to be a too conservative approach and thus I consider to
change this so that gpg always tries to update an expired key via the
Regarding a manual refresh there is indeed only a clumsy set of options
and commands but if we can agree to stop using --search-keys with
keyservers, this command can be used as a forceful update via WKD.
