Not really. Only if i change the pref for the key i use.
My system is similar to the PGP universal system which runs on a server.
Let's think about SHA-1. Right now, it will be the preferred hash alg
for most of the keys. But it's broke, so the administrator what's to
use RIPEMD instead. Instead of changing all prefs of all keys, he just
sets the policy, that RIPEMD is the preferred algorithm (or maybe sets 
that at least SHA256 must be used and keys that do not support it will
Not be used)
Get the point?

But maybe there is a easier way.
There are so many switches, maybe i'm missing something.
