Setting trust level on keys

Issue #95 resolved

It'd be great if there were an API to set a trust level (1-5) on imported keys, so one could later user those when verifying keys.

    It should be possible by first retrieving the trustdb entries via gpg --export-ownertrust, modifying the line matching the key and then piping the result to gpg --import-ownertrust.

    Yes, but I've changed the API slightly after that commit to allow multiple keys to be specified. I see now I made a mistake in the commit message - a typo in the issue number. It should have been this issue.

    Great to hear! This feature should also allow me to eliminate the gpg: WARNING: Using untrusted key! warning visible in the debug log after using a key imported via import_keys. Looking forward to testing this on the next release.
