Sorry to jump in here, but gpg is *not* useful in terms of pkg
management for the average user as long as debs are not auto-checked on
install by dpkg. (And this in turn, of course, is not going to happen
until a properly defined trust infrastructure is in place, probably with
a 'Debian master key' or something like that.)
