I did that on purpose, figuring that if someone sets --force-v3-sigs,
it should not be unset behind the scenes.

I have to say that I'm not really thrilled with any of the
--force-v3-sigs situations.  There are a number of features that are
disabled behind --force-v3-sigs, and yet we still have it set by
default... but if we didn't have it set by default, some PGP users
would have problems.

That's true, but not a good idea.  I've fixed that.
