...except it isn't installed by default. Will this be part of gpg-wks-client? 
But in the future when it is installed by default, I 100% agree with you.

Btw, and because we are on the topic of documentation: there is no mention of 
gpg-wks-tool anywhere in the WKD or WKDHosting pages.

Anyways: whether you promote gpg-wks-client or gpg-wks-tool (which, hopefully, 
won't be installed to libexec), it would still be beneficial to describe the 
actual file system layout.

That seems nice - I will take note for the time this enters Debian...
