Nice:) thanks again. My systems do have network access during
bootstrapping (or I can give some temporarily), so it's not the problem
to import key once. The problem was with seeking network for every
package query, while rejecting with PLD-provided multikey installed
locally. Besides, I would rather not trust rpm.rpm-provided GPG key nor
FTP to verify packages I download at the same time from the same source,
using external keyserver at this very moment seems to be better choice.
