Now, you awake my interest. You said it is the protocol, so let's
say when Werner and his hackers has fixed the issue in GnuPG and
for a protocol you usually have to sides, to work with, could that
not mean then when Werner does x,y,z code in GnuPG that hockeypuck
must follow x,y,z code in order that the protocol works ... ?!

Or do SKS key servers dictate how GnuPG's submission / receiving
protocol must work?
