that's not quite what i meant. What i believe is that you should have
one key for each "role" you act, work, personal/family, open source
developer, porn star, etc.

If stuff is signed with my work key that means one thing (mainly that
I take "business" responsibility for what I'm saying), while stuff
i'll sign with the mbaringer at common-lisp.net key is going to be for a
very different public. but hey, that's just the way i see it.
