Hello Philip,

There is no such thing as a trust path. There are signature paths, but trust is
not transitive in the normal Web Of Trust. Only with trust signatures, which
according to the man page "is generally only useful in distinct communities or
groups". I've replied to a similar request last April: [1].

Be careful to separate the issues of trust and validity.
