Changes in 3.0:

01) KeyUsePolicy to modified to include a "KeyClass" element to define a
user-defined value that identifies the key as belonging to a specific

02) SymkeyRequest is modified to include an optional element to request
symmetric keys of one or more classes. A request message can now ask
for multiple keys of different classes within a single request called
"KeyClasses". Within the KeyClasses element is a list of "KeyClass"
elements, each corresponding to some user-defined value known to the
SKS server. In earlier versions of the protocol, only a single key
could be requested and KeyClass could not be defined.

03) SymkeyResponse is modified to allow the SKS server to return multiple
symmetric keys within a single response, each belonging to a specific
requested KeyClass. The SymkeyResponse may consist of two types of
elements - a Symkey or a SymkeyError. There may be multiple instances
of Symkey and SymkeyError within a SymkeyResponse.
