35 Euro per certificate is pretty expensive, I pay 10 at Gandhi.  You
may also want to wait a few more weeks for the LetsEncrypt initiative.

As an alternative we could also put the gpg4in files on *.gnupg.org.  I
need to get a larger box anyway - I am too often running out of
diskspace (30 GiB HP RAID)

As domain owener I already offered to pay for the certs.
