    pacman-key: --refresh-keys queries WKD before keyserver
    With the recent outages of the keyservers there is a possibility of
    `--refresh-keys` failing to fetch new keys. A lot of current key
    distribution is done over WKD these days, and `pacman-key` has the
    ability to use it for `--recv-key`.
    There was a hope `gpg` would end up supporting WKD for the refresh
    functionality, but this seems to be limited to expired keys fetched
    through WKD. Since this functionality isn't yet available it makes sense
    to stuff it into `pacman-key`.
    The current implementation looks over all available keyids in the
    keyring, attempts to fetch over WKD and then fall backs to keyservers if
    no email has a valid WKD available. The downside of this approach is
    that it takes a bit longer to refresh the keys, but it should be more
    robust as the distribution should be providing their own WKDs.

    libmakepkg: Support zstd decompression for sources
    This enables us to extract files in the source array and ensures that we
    can decompress files if the uncompressed signature is served.
