This was what I suggested.  Maybe there could be more colors.  Orange 
or yellow could mean that the signature is correct, but not from a 
known key (signed by trusted parties, or however it is done).

I compare this to how mutt does it.  In this mail, it said:

[-- PGP output follows (current time: Mon 23 Jun 2003 08:50:03 PM CEST) 
gpg: Signature made Mon 23 Jun 2003 07:48:15 PM CEST using DSA key ID 
gpg: Good signature from "Albrecht Dreß <>"

[-- End of PGP output --]

(Without the extra linefeeds balsa inserted.)

On mails from people I have exchanged keys with, the warning is not

It is probably a good idea to make sure the fetch happens in the 
background, somehow, as keyservers can sometimes be quite slow.
