Current problem:  CLI requires a conflicting dependency with Fedora 
packages Node.js libraries.  I'll see if I can remove the conflicting files.

I like the idea of Keybase, but remember, it is really easy to do PKI 
wrong.  The cardinal rule of PKI is that the Private Key should never 
leave your machine;  ideally it would never leave a hardware security 
module.  It should certainly not be send to some remote machine for 
management unless...well, unless you have the whole archival and storage 
story straight.

So, do Keybase, but don't let it manage your private key.  They don't 
really want to, anyway.
