No user should be exposed to key-id short or long, only fingerprints.
This is the case in default 2.1.14.
But to transition away from the long-time default key-id short, we've
been telling people to use "key-id long" and "fingerprint", see
For 1.4, 2.0 and <2.1.14, this is still the way to go.
But with 2.1.14, this changes and no "key-id" and no "fingerprint" is
best. That's default, good. But that doesn't change existing configs.
So my proposal is to always add the fingerprint in the line after
key-id, regardless of that being none, short or long.
