Indeed, we could change the code for import-minimal so that it first
does the same what self-sigs-only does. Then it should be very similar.
The reason why I added self-sigs-only is to allow ignoring
key-signatures completely. Regardless of any other cleaning options.
Sometimes it is useful to not clean things so that one can see hcnages
to preferences and such.
And well, self-sigs-only is a less intrusive change than changing
import-minimal. If it breaks something it can easily be reverted by the
user - a change to the semantics of import-minimal can't be reverted by
"self-sigs-only" also better expresses what it does. If you have a
better name, let us know.

Removing the keyserver support would even result in more cleanup of that
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
