Alexander, I have read the above pages carefully, and everything seems to 
indicate that I must possess the private key in order to create a revocation 
certificate.  Is that the way you read it?

I do not have the key, nor a revocation cert.
Even though I remember the passphrase, it looks like it won't do any good 
without the private key.

OK, my public key has been on the keyserver @ for some time now, and I 
have added the ID to my sig.
