Why revoke and create a new key? Why not just add the new address on a new UID,
and make it primary. Sometime between now and Oct 31, you can revoke the old UID.
My AT&T address became Comcast; that became Roadrunner.
Same person. Same key. Just a new email address. Plus the revoked address gives
clueful folks the hint that email shouldn't be sent there.
