Maybe I did not make that clear:

I know that the other ones are signatures, I generally know how
GPG works. If I do just:

gpg --edit-key porridge
It displays nice:

The question is: why does "-v -v -v -v --with-colons" display
such enormous amount of duplicated entries? What is the sense
of the _order_ of the entries?

For example:

01 uid:u::::::::Marcin Owsiany <porridge@pandora.info.bielsko.pl>:

Why do both lines 01 and 10 contain the same uid??? Do the
"sig"s that follow them mean that the particular uid has the
particular signatures? Why are they displayed more then once
