Note that if You opt for this last mentioned method then You can run the
'clean' command on the Key and GnuPG will strip the 'lower ranking'
signature from it. Of course, if it is already uploaded to Keyservers
then 'refreshing' Your Key from there will again display 2 Sigs unless
You also use --import-clean.
