Hello all,

I read an option from the man page as below:

----- Option from MAN -----
       --gen-prime mode bits [qbits]
                 Use the source, Luke :-). The output  format  is
                 still subject to change.
----- End list -----

Could someone kindly tell me what it means? Is it man page not complete yet?
I also looked old version (gpg-1.0.2) that is the same.

Thanks in advance!
