You are right.  

I might use in the future to resolve conflicts if there are keys with
the same user-id but different public key algorithms.  Probably I'll 
remove this option as the OpenPGP preference mechanism will be used.
I'm currently working on this. 

There are bugs in the key selection mechanism - they should get fixed
along with implementing algorithm prefixes.

I'll disable this option for now.
