Okay, we can have this.

What I'll do is take the standby key out of the normal sequence into a
"ds-submitted, ds-ready" state, but reuse the publish and ready timestamp
columns (to avoid database schema changes).

Then if a rollover is requested we will use a key in the ready state if one
exists, otherwise one in the "ds-ready" state, failing that we will promote
a key and wait.

Does this sound right to people?
