This is getting ridiculuous.  If what I've read about the incident is
correct, the same person also showed a German ID card with identical
information about the person.  Either you believe ID cards, then you
believe it was Martin Krafft.  Or you don't, then you shouldn't ask
people to revoke their signatures on Martin Krafft's key - when I signed
his key, I verified his identity with an ID that I trusted and still
trust.  Why should I revoke the signature or not sign his new key, when
you don't even know whether it was really him?
