What do you think we get by having the signed ID?  What advantages
accrue to Debian by having this check that someone's real name is what
we think it is?

I think it's a good thing, I agree with our practice, but I'm not sure
what vast security hole is suddenly opened up here.  If we found out
that the person who has been a faithful and valuable developer, under
the name "Martin Krafft" is not the real Martin Krafft, what should we
do?  Go find the real Martin Krafft and make him a developer?
