Alternatively, delete only the revocation signature and the
self-signature using "delsig" and resign using "sign". That way, you
keep certifications in your local copy. The "delsig" interface can be a
pain with many signatures, so more straightforward is to do an --export
before you delete and re-add the UID, and an --import afterwards.
