Well, it would be reasonable to:
ship all keys in keyring package, as symlinks or files in /etc
for each key in $shipped_keyring:
if key not present in /etc/apt/trusted.gpg and we're upgrading from $flag_version
remove /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/$key (if it's the right key)
This will preserve user changes just fine, AFAICS?
