When I started with GPGee I debated the idea of handling
multiple-signatures.  I decided not to deal with the added complexity
because I didn't think it was a much called-for feature.

If this is something that people would want to do more often in the real
world, I'll happily add this feature.

I can even drop in something like "Set target file read-only after
operation" - well, if I can figure out a shorter description to use for it.

Anyway, is multiple-key signing more common than I gave it credit for?
