So deb files wont be signed at all, or signed by the autobuilders.

Hacking the autobuilders and stealing the key is all you need. The
password for the key will be in the shell enviroment, so thats easy to 
get, once you hacked the comp.

There would be no security gained from a signed keyring package, not
for deb files anyway.
