Ah, good catch.  (I wonder why apt has a separate Suggests: gnupg then?)

This means that users who dist-upgrade using aptitude, pulling in

works as expected?

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
