playing with GnuPG v1.3.5 (FreeBSD) and experimenting with the multiple
comment lines...

it seems that the order of comments is the reverse of what it should
intuitively be, regardless of whether the comments are specified in the
config file or the command line.

example 1:
 gpg --clearsign --comment 'first comment' --comment 'second comment' --comment 'third comment'
produces this output:
 Version: GnuPG v1.3.5 (FreeBSD)
 Comment: third comment
 Comment: second comment
 Comment: first comment

if i put the comments in the config the config file like this:
 comment first comment
 comment second comment
 comment third comment

i get the same output as above.

this is entirely non-critical, but i guess it's better to point it out
while this feature is in a development version, so that it doesn't have to
become a "historical feature".
