^^^ You deleted the blank line between the patch subject and the
summary text, which makes it do what it did. You'll want to put that

So I don't find VerifySig any more appitizing, other than matching the
option name we came up with. I was leaning in my head when I wrote up
this TODO toward something like GPGLevel, SigLevel, etc. I also think
we may need to be a bit more granular than our current
Always/Optional/Never trifecta. We have a multitude of possibilities
when checking a signature:

* Valid signature, fully trusted (or ultimate,

* Valid signature, unknown trust/unknown key (GPGME_VALIDITY_UNKNOWN,
* Valid signature, trust somewhere in between (marginal,

* Valid signature, user is never valid (GPGME_VALIDITY_NEVER)
* Valid signature, signature is however expired (GPGME_SIGSUM_SIG_EXPIRED)
* Valid signature, key is however expired (GPGME_SIGSUM_KEY_EXPIRED)
* Bad signature, trust level is irrelevant (GPGME_VALIDITY_RED)

Thoughts from anyone else on the naming, as well as what to do as far
as expanded options? I've divided it above into roughly 3 categories,
of which the top would always be acceptable, the bottom would never,
and the middle could be a switchable option. I'm envisioning something

SigLevel = Always AllowUnknown

SigLevel = Always

SigLevel = Optional AllowUnknown
