Understood, but I don't see how key importing can be done properly 
without a rfc2440 parser to extract the key information.

I could maybe implement a simpler parser which is extracts just the 
information needed by yum but this isn't a straightforward task.

And this module can help yum avoid duplicate key installs ...

I'd prefer to have a verdict from you one way or the other before I 
continue as using the pgpmsg module will influence the implementation
