The question remains: If we drop KeyList in favour of KeyTable, people
will lose some granularity. So is it OK to drop arbitrary
wildcard/pattern capability in favour of a system that will query
user_at_host.domain, host.domain and domain only? If the answer is "yes",
I'm fine with that. I just want to be sure.

We do have that to some degree in that things like TrustSignaturesFrom now
go through the new DB framework which allows real-time changes (just not
through LDAP yet).
