That's an UGLY upgrade because of python-elementree conflicts and a
few other pieces. I really would not do such a thing unless there were
absolutely no other way.

No, that's a standard distro package. It's complaining that you don't
have the key for centos5 installed, not the rpmforge key. For c5, the
key should be in /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5
You can import this with rpm --import
/etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5, but I don't think it'll solve
all your issues.
