Good idea.  I've done something very similar to this for 1.4.2.
Rather than a single --set-expire, there are two different options:
--default-sig-expire and --default-cert-expire, so that the default
may be set for either data or key signatures.

If --ask-sig-expire is set, then --default-sig-expire is used as the
default (hit return to accept the default).  If --ask-sig-expire is
not set, then --default-sig-expire is used as the expiration date
