trust values and trusted keys

From my ancient PGP memory, I remember there are two things that
control how one trusts a key.
One, the validity of the key, as defined by enough marginal or
complete or ultimate signatures on a given key. Two, how much you
personally trust that person not to do something foolish.
With PGP 2.x, once a key became valid, it would prompt for trust
settings. This was a real bother, and I'm glad GPG does not do this.
However, it would be nice to have a way to:
(1) list keys with their validity and trust settings
(2) scan the list of these for valid keys with unassigned
trust settings, so one can assign them a trust easily, if
Are there tools for this already, and I've just not looked deeply
