Another case where common PGP terminology is confusing. You don't really
"sign a key", you certify that a particular identity should be bound to
a key. This process uses the same algorithm as a signature, but the
semantics are different - as evidenced by the fact that [C]ertify and
[S]ign are distinct usages.
