[PROXYPER] Recycling keys

To D.Net folks,

Why would you use time recycling keys after a month or two months or EVER 
until they are needed again, naturally.

If I were to design it, I would mark a key done when it is returned and not 
issue that one again.  When someone wanted a key, I would issue one that 
had not been marked.  That is all.  No time issues to deal with at 
all.  That seems to be useless overhead with its associated possibility for 
errors, like any code.

Maybe my view of this is cracked, being far removed from the project but I 
just never have been able to figure out why anything other than issuing 
unchecked keys is being done.  If I am way off on this, then I apologize in 

My summation is: Are some keys more important than others?  If not, then 
this timed recycling is sillyness.  If so, then I just don't understand the 

Thanks for any enlightenment on this.
