If *deleted* in legalese means
        Key is persistently not present on the server. Period.
then only a blacklist filter on the receive gossip is acceptable
firewall engineering imho.

Why the litigous luser wishes to "own" some random MPI's forevermore
is kind of ironic.

I'm perfectly comfortable with "42" in Douglas Adams estate, and Ramanujan
can have 1729 forever (1728+1 AND 10+9 are the cube roots ;-), but
Joe Random luser has no claim on MPI's imho.
