That's in Feisty too, but then you need to download the key file before
trying to import. It would be nice to have an option to import a key file
directly from an URL (pointing to where the key file is shared by the
packages author, probably the repository server) or even with a key ID (as
we do with: gpg --keyserver subkey.php.net --recv-keys $KEY_ID && gpg
--armor --export $KEY_ID | sudo apt-key add - )
