Apologies if I've missed something, but my understanding was the FBX
was going to use GPG as the basis of an identity system.  Why not use

Possibly there are two different problems that are trying to be
solved.  Perhaps slightly off-topic, but what's wrong with using a
torrent or web file store for what you want, as suggested?
