I think Benjamin was referring more to the last sentence:
"If you lose the media on which your keys are stored or the machine on
which your keys are stored, be sure to report this to
pydotorg at python.org at the same time that you change your keys."
Adding a second key is similar to changing the keys. That said, I don't
think python-committers existed when that FAQ entry was written. It's
really up to the folks that can add new SSH keys as to which list is
most convenient for them though.
