Well, in a trivial sense yes, only >=1.4.3 shows this warning.  But I do
think it's good not to have warnings appear on software signatures
(although the particular attack probably doesn't matter here), and that
means fixing your key.   I guess you may not be able to fix easily
until (I suppose) you switch to edgy and get a new gpg.

Perhaps we should be signing with a role key rather than the RM's
personal key?
