Actually, I wanted to just drop the damn thing.

To me, the point of the tag is so that the person doing the merge can
verify that he merges something trusted.

However, everybody else seems to disagree, and wants that stupid
signature to live along in the repository. And I can live with that,
although I do agree with you that it's not exactly pretty. I can live
with "ugly signature that I don't care for" way more than "stupid
design".

Because unlike your crazy empty commit, it at least fits the workflow,
and it certainly isn't any uglier that extraneous pointless commit.

You can disagree. You obviously do. I simply don't care. Because I'm right.

(And your claim that it's big UI fixes and protocol changes is pure
and utter garbage. I just sent a patch that cleans the code up,
removes a line that improperly drops information and gets rid of the
biggest problem with our current handling of tags. No protocol changes
involved, no big UI fixup).
