While convenient for web browsers, it's not exactly backwards-compatible for both GPG and the average sysadmin who's probably struggling with verifying PGP signatures for the first time.  It's not Samba's fault; GPG just isn't very descriptive in it's error message, which is somewhat misleading.

But then that's just me talking... ;-)
