OK.  Makes sense.

Are you saying that I can either delete the signature or revoke it, or
are you just using "revoke" to clarify your use of "delete" (i.e.
delete and revoke are the same thing)?

When I revoke a signature what happens exactly?  Is my signature still
present in the key and another "blob" of data added revoking it, or
does my signature get removed altogether?  I don't really want to
bloat the keys by adding a "revoking blob" plus yet another signature.
I want to physically replace my signature with another signtuare if
that is at all possible.
