Yes.  A --show-trust or something like that would be nice.  You can
always see the trust in the --edit <key> menu, but that's a
one-key-at-a-time thing.

In 1.0.6, it just forces an update of the trust DB.  In 1.0.7 it
updates the trust DB and also prompts you for any key that is
valid/trusted, but does not yet have owner trust set.
