parcimonie: privacy-friendly helper to refresh a GnuPG keyring

 parcimonie is a daemon that slowly refreshes a gpg public keyring
 from a keyserver.
 Its refreshes one OpenPGP key at a time; between every key update,
 parcimonie sleeps a random amount of time, long enough for the
 previously used Tor circuit to expire.
 This process is meant to make it hard for an attacker to correlate
 the multiple performed key update operations.
 See the included design document to learn more about the threat
 and risk models parcimonie attempts to help coping with.
 parcimonie also ships a deprecated desktop applet that allows one
 to monitor the background daemon's activities with a graphical
 user interface. It may or may not work for you, depending on
 your desktop environment.
