I guess? At this point it's all a solved problem - the key import
mechanism in *current* PK is fine. It's just the version from original
F9 that was problematic.

That's what I was referring to, yes. I agree with the principle of
importing the signing keys at install-time. I just wish we could have
had time to discuss it and choose a solution (and implementation)
agreeable to all.

So: I used the phrase "horrible hacks" because we had scant *hours* to
find and implement the simplest possible workaround, rather than
actually discussing the problem and fixing as we normally do.
