just a short note: Take care that your key has one subkey only
because they manage the keys via a keyserver (with the well known bug
that mangles the keys) - at least that happened with my key last year.=20

So if you've got more than one subkey, maybe you should send them a copy
without the other subkeys. When you get the key back their signature
will be merged into your complete key.
