GnuPG 1.4.7 or later (? on the precise version #) supports longer DSAs

You are free to call it GNU/Linux if you wish.  Likewise, Charly is free
to just call it "Ubuntu" or "Fedora" or "Linux Mint" or whatever else is
clear and unambiguous, depending on what he wishes.  Let's not start a
holy war over what the One True Name of the operating system is.
