Possibly with GnuPG 1.9...

I did some fiddling with the raw message, if you remove the MIME
seperators inserted by mailman and replace them with the MIME lines in
the original message (the Content-Type: line), you can make the
signature show up (and indeed verify) with Thunderbird.

However, the sheer size of the signature (the fact that the entire
certificate is included with it) and the breakage that occurs with
mailing lists continues to demonstrate the superiority of using OpenPGP :)
