This is very unfortunate as it breaks all scripts that call --sign-key <id>
and let the actual signing and uid selection to the user and gpg.
On a related note, gpg now lists unique identifiers for each uid:
| uid:u::::951840856::6DE2DB889258745FC0F19712AAD73DB1E1AF8E35::Peter Palfrader:
| uid:u::::974848155::7846E1859AD46C860243B91589845BE87B584845::Peter Palfrader <weasel at debian.org>:
Is there a way to use them in the edit dialog? I imagine something like
| gpg --edit-key 12345678
| uid 7846E1859AD46C860243B91589845BE87B584845 <-----
would be handy.
