Hi, are there any plans to integrate OTR keys with PGP? (c.f. how monkeysphere
integrates SSH keys with PGP).

It's good that crypto products don't also try to provide a PKI and reimplement
the wheel, but then they should actually *use* existing ones to fill this gap!

Also, how does OTR prevent MITM against "Q/A" and "Shared secret" auth[1], as I
was under the impression that only physical face-to-face verification of
fingerprints (or a derived process, e.g. PGP's WoT) can prevent such attacks.
