Hi is there a way to add an uid in batch mode ?

//I have try this ://

$ LANGUAGE=en gpg2 --edit-key --batch mykey
gpg: can't do this in batch mode

// and this //

cat << EOF | gpg2 --edit-key mykey
> adduid
> test_
> test2 at
> comment
> o
> save

Why the second way does not work ? it should make things simpler to use gpg in other scripts, no ?
(...but maybe with an option to have a standard and international behavior inside gpg prompt, ok.)
