Spammers are starting to use faked pgp signature tags. The system should then
decode the signature, testing its validity, with the overhead and delay it
will produce.

I'd rather have a system that uses reportbug to create the initial
X-BTS-Accepted and stores valid addresses (which can be forged by viruses, but
that is another problem, then) and at least the keyring addresses.
