Really, really bad experiences.  I've seen people resign from the project
over the waiting period.  I suggest you switch to your new key for
everything but the debian activities that need a key in the Debian keyring.

You are welcome to using your new key in the mailing lists, for example.
Keep the old one for db.debian.org and packaging activities only...
