was checking my original v3 rsa key in gnupg1.4.9 and got the 
following gnupg output with the 'edit' command:

pub  2048R/85306D25  created: 2000-09-05  expires: never       
usage: SCEA
                     trust: ultimate      validity: ultimate
[ultimate] (1). vedaal nistar <vedaal at>
[ultimate] (2)  vedaal nistar <vedaal at>
[ultimate] (3)  vedaal nistar <vedaal at>

are all v3 keys imported to gnupg automatically accorded SCEA 
status ?

('SE' is understandable, 'C' is a nice touch, 'A' was totally 

just another talking point to try to get the die-hard remailer 
crowd who want to keep their v3 keys, to upgrade to gnupg ;-)
