Well, I think most of us use caff for this, with some special precautions:

  - give to caff full fingerprints so as to avoid having to check them
    at all (you make the list by just editing the .txt file: delete the
    keys you won't sign, and leave the fingerprints of the rest)

  - use gnupg-agent, of course

  - optionally, invoke caff like `yes y | caff` in the signing phase, if
    you don't mind signing UIDs that were not present in the list

For mor information, check /usr/share/doc/signing-party/caff/README.many-keys.
