not mentioned here:

|       -h, --help
|                 Print usage information.  This is a really  long
|                 list even though it doesn't list all options.

but in from version 1.0.6 (windoze) it says:

|       --delete-key name
|                 Remove key from the public keyring
|       --delete-secret-key  name
|                 Remove key from the secret and public keyring

but "and public" seems to be a typo, right?

|       --delete-secret-and-public-key  name
|                 Same  as  --delete-key,  but  if  a  secret  key
|                 exists, it will be removed first.
