It was a neat idea, but was a mistake.
The idea is 10 years old, from before we even Photorus, and we thought
that we'd have a multitude of key managers hanging out. The reality is
that we don't yet have one good key manager, let alone multiple ones.
Making it un-reliable or multicast was a mistaken.
And, Craig Metz rarely answers emails these days.
