I've found this guide:
but it doesn't seem to work anymore. I know that migrating subkeys is a
bit of hocus-pocus, but is it still supposed to work? I get stuck at
trying to generate new (correct) binding signatures for the subkeys. I
don't get any errors, but nothing changes after I change the expire date
for the key.
Also, I see an empty Usage: field (where I expected to see "E" to
indicate it's an encryption key).

PS: the reason why I'm trying this is: I'm migrating master key, but if
I keep my current subkeys (signature mostly), I can start signing right
away, and people with my old key (+subkeys) will still see it as a valid
signature. But I'm not very sure that this won't break things when GPG
sees two master keys with the same subkey.
