Great.  I hadn't previously been thru an email address change involving
pgp.  Looks like the situation is well covered.

My current key has 768 bits.  I'll start using a 1024 bit key.
I don't think there's any problem with just changing over at
thsi time, since the only thing I'm using it for is dchanges
and uploading packages, and the upload site end isn't (yet)
verifying pgp signatures.
