I'd like to have an option to always add the key to the keyring specified
on the command line, even if it already is on one of the others.

[ Looking through the manpage ] Oh, there is a no-default-keyring option,
how nice -- hmmm, but that only turns off the builtin keyring, not the one
in the options file.

Oh yes, and if I have more than one keyring, how about defaulting to the
ring which has the most signature matches? I.e., I might have a private and
a company keyring in my options file, and when I import the key  of our
newest coworker gpg would notice that it's signed by some of the keys on
the company ring, and automatically save it there.
