In OpenPGP parlance (rfc2440) a secret key is meant as a private key.
There is even another reason to speak about a secret key :
private key - public key secret key - public key
prvkey - pubkey seckey - pubkey
pk - pk :-( sk - pk
Guess where you make more error when writing or reviewing code. The
fist goal is to keep a secret secret and thus I prefer to use "secret"
instead of "private".
