Selective import; pop-up trust dialog

While I'm asking about features, here are a couple that I've wanted
for a long time, but have never gotten around to asking about:

When importing a file that contains many keys, I'd like to be able to
select only a subset to be incorporated into my keyring.  This
might take the form of a dialog (like PGP does) or a pattern
to accept.  Is there any such mechanism?

- - and -

When encrypting to a key that I haven't signed locally, I get a dialog
that displays the fingerprint of the *encryption* subkey.  I'd really
like to see the *signing* key's fingerprint; that's what I use to
verify identity in other situations, and it's what I keep handy.
Another notable OpenPGP product won't even show the encryption subkey
fingerprint.  I suppose some people might still want to see the
encryption key's fingerprint, but would it be reasonable to show both?
[Yes, I can (and regularly do) stop the dialog and get the signing key
fingerprint separately, but it's a nuisance.]

Thanks for any suggestions!
