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?
