Especially given the intermittent flakeyness of the keyservers of late.
Some may just not be reachable from time to time, others just
disappear for days at a time. I've had to change my
primary keyserver in kgpg three times in the last month.

IMHO there has been entirely too much evangelizing of smart
on this list. If Novell had not forced the developers down the ZMD
road smart wouldn't get the time of day around here.
Talk about a "New Coke" story.!!!
