There is no command line option to handle this case, as generally
people don't encrypt to themselves multiple times.

That said, you can still do it - just hit "enter" three times when
prompted for the passphrase for the key you don't want to use.  This
will make GnuPG roll over and try the next available key.

Good job on "Rhapsody in Blue", by the way ;)
