Hi mutt developers and gnupg artists,

I tried to figure out why mutt behaves different in pub key
selection if using pgp2 or gpg (via pgp2.rc/gpg.rc).

gpg --list-keys --with-colons    should show a "q" in the second
field (according to file "DETAILS.gz") if the computed trust is

Mutts utility  pgpring  is showing this, but gpg v 1.07 shows a
dash "-":

Don't know until now if my problems have to do with this, but I
thought one of both should change.
