Oh, I was not aware of this one but it is very useful.

I did ask Enigmail to use e-mail address as --local-user but they had a 
different idea:

Adding --sender there could resolve my issue (adding Signer's UID 
packet) without changing their key selection logic.

Thanks for the info!

Kind regards,
