Ah yes, Disastry was the first to complain about it ;-)

Why?  You are probably after v3 keys - but OpenPGP does not allow

If someone really wants sign and encrypt keys, he can use the batch
creation mode, where he has to specify the keyflags explicit (see
checks/genkey1024.test).  Normal users don't want this.
