[Discuss] What key lengths are currently adequate?

OK, I'm not looking for entropy anymore. 

I just found an "old" key. It doesn't expire until 2017, so I don't
think I have to generate a new one.

Here's another question, though: what key lengths are considered
"adequate" these days? This key is 4096 bits, which I'm confident is
long enough for now, but I'm curious what the "minimum" recommended
key length is these days.
