I twice requsted that ftp-master puts the key for Release/Release.gpg
as Release.key[ring] next to each file to have a standardized place
where keys for any apt-getable archive can be found.

If you can get ftp-master to put the key in that place then I'm
willing to patch apt to use it for key updates with enough checking
and interactivity to make it save.
