So a public key can be associated with more than one email address or
For instance you may run a RPM website where people download your RPM's.
You sign these RPM's with the same key that you sign your emails with.
One uid could be your email address and another uid could be 'Davide's
Hot RPM's' <email@example.com>. Maybe like me you just have multiple
email addresses and don't want a seperate key for each of them.
