What is really missing is an ability to display used key ID without
hammering git log output with regexps, it would be much easier to
validate incoming commits if there was format option to just display
key ID instead of signer name. %GS isn't really good solution for that
because it will show only one of email addresses used in the key and
script checking signatures would have to always pick "right" one.
