Strange. When I tried last night, I thought it worked.
I just tried and it didn't. Then remembered what I had done just
before I thought it worked last night.
I had created a new UID with exactly the same UID string as the
revoked one. That seems to be enough to unrevoke the UID, once the
second run through edit-key merges the new UID with the old one that
had the same string.
It wasn't the SETPREF that unrevoked it, it was the previous step.
