feature request: --show-photos additions

I wouldn't suggest using photo's present on a key
as a method of determining trust.  It's too easy for
a photograph to be copied from someone's real key
to a counterfeit.

GPG 1.0.7 has the features you mention.  For some
reason it doesn't work on my Windows NT 
implementations, perhaps it doesn't work on other 
Windows implementations, I'm not sure.  But you
can set Netscape up as your photo ID viewer and
then output the JPEG as a file from Netscape on
