such trust paths with images in them (e.g. "Mary says that this is Joe" is useful, but a picture of Mary saying "this is Joe" would be even more
appealing to many users).

I like this one in particular. The WoT is one of the least understood parts of OpenPGP. Doing it graphically would help.

Plus, it would be cool ;)

Yes.
