Please enlighten me about -kw I don't know this option.

-k* are for compatibility with PGP2 but they might be removed in
 future.  The problem with the -k* option is the syntax:

  pgp -kv[v] [userid] [keyring]

which does not allow for multiple user IDs and keyrings.  It is very
likely that "-k" will be made an alias for --list-keys.
