Yeah, I think that's a pretty good idea. I believe it could be up to
each distro to see what they want to do, though.
Well, since the discussion seems to be more about the implementation
than about the spec, is everything all right with this new key ? Is it
ok to commit the previously submitted patch (and who can commit it --
since I don't think I have the rights to do that) ?
