Algo preferences in the key were a matter of some discussion in
Please correct me, if I´m wrong: AFAICS GnuPG always defaults to 10/4/3
and there is no way to change the preferences other than the way you
describe above, which I think is awkward.
Changing the preferences to anything else but 10/4/3 is not possible
at all, is it?
Would it be possible to add a method to change preferred algorithms
in the --edit-key funktion and options to set preferred algorithms
to user preferences at key generation time to the to-do list for
