    Cool! Does it save enough that GPG signature information can be
    verified later? I'm a little fuzzy on what is covered by the
    signature which gets verified when you run the command "git verify-tag
    tytso-for-linus-20111214". Better yet, does the new version of git
    have a command that will automatically verify the digital signature
    found in a merge commit?

    And this isn't in 1.7.8 yet, right? I'd have to build version of git
    based on the next branch to play with this new signatury goodness?
