I think it is vanishingly unlikely and IIRC the bk->hg transition was
long before Xen 3.0.0 even.

Isn't it 0x57e82bd9? That one is on the keyservers. I don't have an hg

Since the release (and therefore sigs) would have been made on the
X.Y-testing.hg tree perhaps the release tags will be in the release
