This is not the default thing and there is no direct way to do it unless
you want to add the keys one after the other.

In theory not since 2.0 but we initially implemented the new thing only
for the S/MIME part.

Extending the parameter file feature is probably the easiest way. It
would be a low priority task. But if it is for a commercial use there
are ways to speed it up ;-).
