Which is exactly what I do right now. And I can't say I've ever had an
issue with it. However, this detects neither errors in the protocols
running above the VPN nor errors in the signing itself. And that makes
me rather nervous given how much stuff would stop working if my master
server loaded some incorrectly signed data.
