Jon: to do this, run "gpg --edit-key [your key name]". This gives a
nice little command-driven UI. Use the "adduid" command to add a new
UID to your key.
My $0.02: I think you should think twice about using the same key for
work and personal use. I use two different keys myself. If your key is
an "identity," it's probably not a bad thing to have two different
identities for your personal and professional life.
Analogy: I give out two different sets of business cards* to people,
depending on whether they are friends or business contacts. One has my
business address, work phone #, company name and title, and company
email address. The other has my home address and phone #, and personal
email address. They represent two "identities."
Anyways, that's my opinion.
