I have often seen mention of (but not personally used) CA - Fire and
"CA Fire and Forget is a script that helps you in keysigning. It takes
a list of keyids on the command line, fetches them from a keyserver and
calls GnuPG so that you can sign it. It then mails each key to all its
email addresses - only including the one UID that we send to in each
mail, pruned from all but self sigs and sigs done by you. The mailed
key is encrypted with itself as a means to verify that key belongs to
