That is definitely an option, but it just adds another maintenance aspect
(ie. having to remember to sign, and to double check that if anybody else
has put files in that directory that they have told me so that I can sign
them)... since we don't care about the signature it seems like an extra
unnessesary hassle.  I was hoping that since the yum authors gave the
option, that maybe the up2date authors would also have a way to individually
ignore GPG (hint hint nudge nudge to up2date authors :-).
