Just to provide some statistics about dpkg-sig usage, as I got curious
about it too:

In the archive, 525 out of 283283 .deb's are dpkg-sig'd (0.19%). There
are 8 distinct keys used for those 525 .deb's, seven of which correspond
to DD's[1].

I'm not going to interpret these numbers, as it's close to impossible to
do so objectively.


[1] Interested DD's can look into merkel:~jeroen/dpkg-sig how I got these
