But how would you choose from where to receive the keys?
--receive-keys is not exactly equivalent to to --recv-keys from gpg
because the former maps to --keyserver and --recv-keys in gpg. It
would save us a few keystrokes, as --keyserver is not useful for any
other option (we don't send keys from pacman's keyring to any gpg
