If my memory does not fail on me, I recall disabling them after a
comment by one of the main developers hinting that it didn't make much
sense to ship them. I'm afraid I can't remember who.

In any case, I'm happy to reintroduce them if that's what upstream
wants, which seems to be the case.

I will do that tomorrow when uploading 0.90.

Q: How do Debian developers play Russian rulette?
A: Everone contributes a key revocation certificate and chooses a number
from one to ten. Then everybody executes a random generator - if it's a
match, then his revocation certificate is submitted to the keyservers.
