using subkey signatures

It just came to my attention (thanks Matthew) that gpg can't
auto-retrieve a key if the signature was made by a subkey, since the
main keyid is not contained in the signature package at all.
Is there some work done to make this work?
- the keyserver could index the subkey id's, too or
- the primary keyid could be included in the signature somehow
gpg of course would need to parse this.
I'll do the 2nd for now, although I feel the first would be 'cleaner'
(although I don't know why, really).
Hmmm... I understand that the proposed way to define a local notation is
<name>@<site>=..., so the probability of namespace conflict is
minimized. gpg won't let me do this. (1.0.7, that is.)
