I ended up using one key for work and another key (not just a separate
key ID) for home.  They are mutually signed.  This way, in the nightmare
subpoena scenario, I could surrender the key I use for all work-related
mail without endangering the privacy of my personal mail.

I didn't have an overwhelming argument in favor of this approach, so
I'm also curious to hear what others have done, and their rationales.
