My understanding was that --enable-large-rsa enables creation of
keysizes up to 8192 in --batch mode (i.e. for programmatic use by other
tools), and enables the *use* of large RSA keys that otherwise might
fail due to lack of allocated secure memory.

I don't think the intent was to expose the size of 8192 to the normal
user interface.
