Some email clients (Thunderbird+Enigmail, for instance) let you put a
kind of note to other users hidden in the email headers.  These things,
called "kludges," are one of the preferred ways to do it.

If you really want to do it in a signature block, I'd suggest adding
something as simple as "OpenPGP: 0xDECAFBAD" or whatever the heck your
key ID is.  :)
