[JDEV] PGP / Public Key retrieval

OK, I finally begun adding PGP support to Jabbernaut (don't hold your 
breath, it'll take some time to finish, as I'm really busy moving & 
beginning to study & having a real life <g>)

Anyway, what I really want to know:

* what clients already implement PGP / the various namespaces for it 
(x:signed and x:encrypted IIRC) ? I know Imjay and KIM so far, are 
there others?

* how am I supposed to get the key of the guy I'm talking to? I know 
Imjay tries to get it from the vCard. And I also thought about using 
the jabber ID like an email (in the MacOS PGP SDK I can get a key 
based on the email).

We really should agree on some sort of (semi-)standard. It doesn't 
have to be a full-fledged standard, but at least some guidlines for 
client authors...
