Signing other keys with a subkey is not any longer supported.  Using a
subkey for signing other keys was not intended.  Allowing this would
exhibit a couple of other problems like expiration of subkey and
primary key have to be taken into account when checking a signature.


I noticed the other trust report but have not yet found the time to
check it.
