gnutls + openpgp

 It seem that the IETF TLS working group is defining a new certificate
type extension, which in short makes the openpgp certificate type
extension obsolete. The authors of the new draft are not very keen into
adding the openpgp key type into the new certificate type extension,
based on the fact that this is not widely used. So my question is does
it really make sense to pursue that? Are there applications using gnutls
with openpgp keys?

And even more, if it is shown they are not widely used, does it make
sense to support openpgp keys in gnutls at all?
