Oh ...OK. IIRC there was a bug that prevented the prompting from  
working last time I checked. But either way the problem is that the  
gpg plugin has no integration with the gpg keyagent, so typing (and  
even pasting) the passphrase for all signatures is a major PITA. At  
least for jci it would be (many artifacts).

On the other hand I am tempted to move away from the multiproject  
business because it still sucks so badly ...that would also mean less  
artifacts and less pain.

Maybe someone of our fellow maven'ers could comment on this :)
