I chose to not automatically import the keys by default but leave each
site open to doing this.  We provide the keys and let you import them
(with the given command or manually).  Optionally, if you add that
value to csw.conf, they'll be automatically imported the next time the
package changes.  Some sites are more sensitive to this than others so
I went for 'opt in' instead of 'opt out.'
