Here's how to transfer a 1.0.7-generated key to 1.0.6.

1) gpg --simple-sk-checksum --edit (mykeyid)

2) "passwd".  Change the password.  You can change it back to what it
   was originally if you like.

3) "save".

Now you can do the usual --export-secret-key and --export to export
the keys in a format that 1.0.6 can import.
