    I seem to have solved my own problem to some extent; I can now sign my
    messages through a simple shell script. However, how can I verify someone
    else's signature under pan?

    I use "nn", which doesn't provide PGP support. But it does allow me
    to configure an editor. So I use a shell script as "editor". The
    shell script starts the real editor. Then, at the end, it calls
    gnupg to sign the edited message.

    It seems that you haven't solved it. When verifying, I get

    gpg: Signature made Tue Dec 21 23:43:38 2004 CST using DSA key ID FB0714D9
    gpg: BAD signature from "John Floren "

    The chances are that your newsreader has a way of piping the current
    message to a command. I pipe to a shell script that does
    verification of stdin. Also check if your newsreader allows you to
    define macros. In my case, I can define SHIFT V to invoke the "pipe
    to my pgpvrfy script" action. This makes it relatively simple.
