There appears that there might be some problems with LISTSERV munging PGP
authentication, and this is an attempt to verify that it IS a problem of
LISTSERV's translation mechanisms, and not my stupidity.

PGP Users: Please check this against both the key available via finger
and the one on the keyservers (if you have it).

I checked against your key I got by finger and it worked fine. You are who
you say you are. Unless you aren't who you say you are and are really good at
making people think you are. Uh...yeah...I guess that's right. Mind you, I
could be who I say I am, or I could be someone else. Oh the wonders of public
key encryption (or lack thereof).
