Every project worth it's salt has a{tlp}/KEYS
file which contain that project's contributors signatures, countersigned
or not.  Ideally, they are extensively countersigned.  But in some cases
they are not.

The delta is; are you trusting{tlp}/KEYS?  Or are
you trusting www.friendlyname.zz/mirrors/apache/dist/{tlp}/KEYS?  There's
a pretty major difference :)
