There is a koji import-sig call. So, in theory, the scripting could just
import the signatures from fedora koji and then cbs could write out
needed signed copies for whatever reason. 

I think that will require downloading/calling fedora koji directly tho,
as the detached signatures are not in the download/repo, only on the
koji hub. 

Should be possible from a technical side though I would think...
