No.  Not right.  If I sign your key, it DOES NOT mean I trust YOU, it
just means that I trust that you are who you say you are.  It says
nothing about what I think of your character.

All you have to do to get a bunch of signatures is meet lots of
developers in person and show them your ID (roughly).

This is more useful.
