This is a good idea to be able to share OpenPGP fingerprints in this
way.  If someone does a nice implementation, we will probably
incorporate it into Serval Project, or at least try to get a student
to integrate the two.

Also, assuming my flights are not delayed, I should be at the
hackathon for the last few hours with our latest version of our
distributed mesh telephony software, aka, Serval BatPhone.

Look for the slightly jet lagged guy with the Australian accent ;)
