Thawte's WoT would do pgp too; I just assumed given it was discontinued
shortly after Thawte was sold, that the new owners didn't want any
A group I was a member of tried to set up a WoT like structure using
Public Notaries to emboss a print of the key thumbprints for an
individual, but it didn't work outside of the USA (given most other
countries don't have PNs and/or don't respect the US ones)
