Why not make "import-clean" and "import-minimal" strip key signatures
before importing a key? That would make "import-minimal" behave like
this new "self-sigs-only" and there would be no need for yet another
option. Who needs both "import-minimal" and "self-sigs-only"?

My opinion: make "keyserver-options import-clean" the default and make
it internally never import any unknown signatures.
