I would argue that this is true regardless of the number of uids on a
key. I do use PGP with Windows, but I also use the command line there. I
do not know of any software that has a competent GUI that does
everything I would want it to do, or even a reasonable subset of it. I
would find it interesting to be proven wrong however. :)

Given that your opinion is contrary to that of just about everyone else,
it seems to lie with you to provide said patches for said mail clients.
Frequently restating your opinion doesn't make it any more valid.
