In the worst case, people can disable the retry feature and all of the
associated code can be disabled simply by setting
sync-openpgp-key-refresh-retry-count = 0 in repos.conf.

In order to reduce the bus factor, I'm modeling the code on the standard
library's asyncio framework. This allows use to leverage people's
experience with asyncio, and also introduces people to asyncio concepts
if they are not yet familar.

I'd love to help reduce the bus factor, and I'm working to do that, like
with the asyncio stuff.

I disagree with your synopsis.

Again, I'd love to help reduce the bus factor.

That's your decision to make, but I think you'll benefit from merging my
mainline changes.

I feel like I'm doing my part, and I appreciate your role as well.
Thanks very much for your work.

Again, I'd love to help reduce the bus factor, and the asyncio stuff
represents movement toward that goal.
