Why don't you use alternate user ids for this?

PLEASE: Tell your ISP to remove gnupg if he can't switch to 0.4.0!!!!!

And I don't think it is a good idea to use gnupg on a remote
machine and store the secret keyring there.  If you are only doing
this for test purposes (Say you don't have a Unix box on your desk),
please mark your keys with a comment TEST, INSECURE or EVALUATION.

Nobody would trust any of your keysignatures if you don't have control
over your secret keyring.
