Hu? Why do you want 2 keys in the debian keyring? What reasons do you
have? It's senceless because one key is enough. And if your key doesn't
work any longer, then revoke it.

The only problem is if you had no backup and no revoke certificate and
removed your ~/.gnupg then. That's stupid (it happened to me *g*), and
there should be a procedure to evidence that it's your key, like sending
a copy of you identity card per post to the keyring-maint, or some other
procedure (I have no other idea at the moment).
