uhm, why not just change the expiration date? from what i understand,
the expiration is only applicable to a public key, the private key can
be changed in terms of expiration... or am i wrong?

actually, your signing key can be changed in terms of expiration, your
encrypting key will expire, but that one is independent of
signatures...
