You could do either, but I would suggest simply adding a new User ID
containing your new address. OTOH, if your old address is null and void
and your Key isn't that widely distributed, you may well want to generate
a brand new Key. How you do that depends on what you are using as a
Front-end for GPG. I personally suggest GPGTray, but there is also WinPT
and both greatly simplify the procedure.
