i think too many noobs were being confused by the prompt. the theory now
seems to be that if you know about levels, you'll figure out how to sign
with a desired level. for everyone else, it defaults to 0x10.
IFIAK, PGP(tm) is still only capable of issuing 0x10 key signatures.

in shining armor to lead all customers out of a mire
of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that
it was he, who by peddling second-rate technology,
led them into it in the first place."
