I implemented this:

  $ g10/gpg2 -v --gen-key

  Real name: Kit Fielding

  You selected this USER-ID:

  We need to generate a lot of random bytes. It is a good idea to perform
  pub   rsa2048/7BD0D1C1 2014-09-27
        Key fingerprint = 56B6 8B1E 36C5 AD87 148F  BDCD 4C4D 9B18 7BD0 D1C1
  uid       [ unknown] Kit Fielding <kit at dickfrancis.null>
  sub   rsa2048/39BAD417 2014-09-27

--gen-full-key is indetical to the old one.  Using --gen-key with
--batch is also not affected.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
