Messages signed with a key that hasn't been uploaded to a keyserver cause 
some minor annoyance, at least with kmail. There client becomes 
unresponsive for about 15 seconds while attempting to download and verify 
the message. I've disabled autodownloading for that reason.

I just download the key when I get a singed message that I don't already 
have the key for.
$ gpg --recv-keys {key_id} is easy enough.
