Hmm, this is rather disturbing, be basically says that you can spoof both
the key fingerprint and the keyID to produce an identical ID
information from different keys. Sounds like I should be using a triplet
composed of the keyid, fingerprint and keylength ?

We are not directly vunerable to this as our key list is protected, GPG
will not be able to verifiy a spoofed key against it, but I can envision
some way where a key could be accidently inserted into the ring through
