It still is a PGP 2 key.  Updating only updates the user IDs (actually
updating the self-signatures on the user IDs).  The key itself remains
PGP 2, and cannot be updated.

If you aren't concerned about PGP 2 compatibility (since you updated
your user IDs, I assume you aren't), you can safely answer "yes" to
that question.

Perhaps I should change the code to not ask the photo ID question if
there are any OpenPGP self-signatures on the key... the user of such a
key has already made a decision about PGP 2 compatibility.
