I’d like to point out that the options you are referring to are actually 
enabled by default nowadays (since 2.2.17). So from an user’s point of 
view, the judicious thing to do is simply to use the latest GnuPG 
version available.

I am pointing that out because people could interpret your comment as 
meaning that GnuPG requires some tinkering of its options in order to be 
safely usable with regard to the SKS spamming issue. That’s not the 
case; the default configuration is fine.
