 Actually I would hope for both ways.  Some people don't carry around
their GPG key (for good reasons) but change the ldap password
(regularly) to be able to update stuff when needed.  I guess both
approaches would be useful for this specific case.

 And thanks for working on that -- I remember hearing from various
people asking to disable their shell accounts over the years (especially
in the discussions after the break-in back then ...), so it's nice to
see this finally happening. :)

 Speaking of webwml, we probably will suspend people who don't respond
to our relicensing questionaire for a start.  ;)
