 Okay, I didn't know about this feature of gnupg, so thanks for that.

Pacman seems to have a feature of downloading required PGP keys on demand,
so I was going for something similar in the user experience with makepkg.

It still might be useful for AUR maintainers as a one liner of how to fix
PGP signature errors seen by users? Certainly easier to find than the above

As for automation, the above setting is a couple of extra steps but that's
probably fine (with automation).
