Re: How to update a self-signature?

True.  I was implying a Key Revocation, not a UserID revocation.
My appologies for being ambiguous.

Keep in mind that you DON'T want to over-ride a revocation

It depends on the revocation reason.  If the revocation says 'user ID
no longer in use', it makes perfect sense to override it.
