In the various LUG mailig lists I'm subscribed to I've often seen 
people ignoring the unsigned packages warning with a joyful 
"click ok and don't worry about it" attitude.

I'm afraid that the fact that usually nothing bad happens 
means that the user won't expect this to be a sufficient warning 
that the system is going to get seriously broken.
