Oh well, this is a bit counterintuitive because the expiration time is
a hard fact in X.509, and rather fuzzy in OpenPG.
Would you accept a patch, even if it's a kludge? (Expiration doesn't
seem to be signalled separately, so we'd have to change the code that
generates the expiration flag, and not the code that uses it.)
