I think it would then depend on whether you can obtain a
trust path from that GPG key to Mr. Lundberg himself.  If
it for example is signed by his old key which is in the
keyring or if it is signed by another developer, you can
verify that that particular key belongs to him.  Otherwise,
it's just another key on a keyserver with no trust path.

Just my $0.02.
