Probably not days, though, right?  Here's the basis of the question,
from my latest submission:
                  Lines rejected: 7
  rejected lines (up to 10)
  -> Hash: SHA1

  -> -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
  -> Version: GnuPG v1.2.6 (GNU/Linux)
  -> iD8DBQFCs63w1EA5y2KQUMURAgIgAJ9bYxvPZkbjg5XanzxoIaTapigsGQCgreSN
  -> n1+gBc+tHQLInK4+Yf8A0B0=
  -> -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----

It's not a complaint.  It's more a point of curiosity.  If it doesn't
add value at the DShield end (which is the impression I get from having
the lines rejected), I can omit inserting the sigs to save the parser
from the hassle of throwing them away.  Do you have any thoughts either way?
