output of --check-trustdb

I am trying to understand how the trust calculations work and I think I have 
made serious progress in that... ;-)

There are at least two things I have not understood yet:

1) Is it possible to have the ownertrust value shown with --list-keys? 
Validity can be shown. I had expected a parameter like show-ownertrust for 

2) I do not understand the "signed" column in the output of --check-trustdb. I 
read something about that but it doesn't make sense to me. It seems generally 
difficult to find good information about that.

start cmd:> LC_ALL=C gpg --check-trustdb
gpg: 3 marginal(s) needed, 1 complete(s) needed, PGP trust model
gpg: depth: 0  valid:  17  signed:  26  trust: 0-, 0q, 0n, 0m, 0f, 17u
gpg: depth: 1  valid:  26  signed:   3  trust: 0-, 0q, 10n, 8m, 8f, 0u
gpg: depth: 2  valid:   3  signed:   0  trust: 0-, 0q, 0n, 1m, 2f, 0u

Before someone asks: Yes, of course, there are a lot of test keys.
