It was suggested by Werner to do key selection in Emacs, like GPGME.  I
don't know whether GPGME changed the logic though.

I'm afraid I wouldn't do any work toward tofu at this level of quality;
in particular, until they reach the consensus whether tofu is only
activated when encryption is triggered by an email address.
