That sounds like you might have a different issue in mind?
Figuring out the matching user id for a new key signature. Right, --import-options repair-key is the the default and does the same. However, it was also the major cause for the recent trouble with the keyservers because it tried to verify all signatures. repair-keys was made the default (T2236) because it seemed to be nearly for free - which was a false assumption. We should not use this option by default and only consider properly placed signathures as valid. This of course also means that a userid is required.

@werner, i don't understand your last remark. what "required computations" do you think the proposed patches are "moving" from the server to the client?
Oh, no worries! Just wanted to confirm, that's all.
I am about half way. Sorry for the slowness.
I've been wondering this also. I can start working on this.
Is anyone working on this? Just want to confirm.
