revuid seems to be non-existent; however revkey revokes a secondary key. In
my case though I want to get rid of the old email@example.com
*primary* ID. I was under the impression this ID could not be revoked.
I just tried it now btw. It seemed to work fine, but for example kmail still
says "message signed by firstname.lastname@example.org". One might argue it's an
application problem; but I'd like to just totally remove any trace of my old
one... so AFAIK my only choice is to generate a new key.
But generating a new key from time to time isn't that bad of an idea anyway -
it's already 3 years old.

Ok, so this should change my kmail problem. But I suspect I can't get away
from the notion that email@example.com is the primary (revoked or not).
I think I'll just re-generate my keyring.
