Yes, it is supposed to provide information about the validity of a key, or
the amount of trust the user has assigned to it.

Feel free to leave this interface out for now (or do it when everything else
is done): It is experimental (as documented in the manual, which you have
certainly read :), and probably subject to change.

The whole key management interface in gpgme still needs to evolve a bit
