In the 2005-01-23 keyanalyze keydump, there are 2896 0x11 (userid cert.)
sigs. from 589 issuers (unique long keyids).  296 issuers (50%) only
issued one 0x11 sig. and 560 (95%) issued less than ten 0x11 sigs.
0x10581685C521097E (Kyle's RobotCA instance) is responsible for 592
such sigs, or 20%, 0x6EA7FB4DE0BB4BCD ('s RobotCA instance)
issued 217, or 7.5%, and 0x25360A719C851DF1 (ImperialViolet) issued 127.
Only two individuals issued more 0x11 sigs than my 40.
