How would you know which one is the oldest if you only have the
duration and not the interval? And how would the lifetime help you to
decide which one to roll?

I was also wondering what you need the repository for? Once the key
has been created, then libhsm will find it for you. Well, we do have
the operation to mark a key as backed up.

Or maybe I am just not clear with the concept...
