RFP: ubuntu-archive-keyring -- GnuPG keys of the Ubuntu archive

pbuilder started to pass the --keyring option to debootstrap when
creating a chroot environment [1].  This means it is not possible to
create a Ubuntu chroot environment (on Debian) without either grabbing
the ubuntu-archive-keyring from somewhere by hand or telling pbuilder to
not pass the --keyring option (possibly a security issue).

I think it would be beneficial to include the keyring package in the
Debian archive in the interest of the developers that care about both
Debian and Ubuntu.
