I wonder if it is possible to change the primary user ID of a key in
GnuPG? I'm about to change primary email address and would like to change
my key to reflect that. I haven't found the answer in the documentation,
if it is there I apologize and would appreciate a pointer.

I tried deleting the old user ID and re-adding it. This makes the user
IDs appear in the new order in GnuPG and on the keyservers, but
when I search on, it claims that the old user ID is still

Search URIs:

Adding "&template=netensearch%2Cnetennomatch%2Cnetenerror" to the end of
the URI makes it even more obvious, with little blue and
grey illustrations... :)

Please CC your answers to me, I'm afraid I don't have the time to read
the list.

Thanks in advance,
