generating keys whose names begin with a digit instead of a letter
Fri Mar 21 01:27:02 2003

i imported a keypair from pgp to gnupg,
the keyname began with a digit {263m63des}
everything worked fine, as expected.

when i tried to generate a key in gnupg, 
{ordinary dh key, nothing fancy}
and give it a name beginning with a digit, 
gnupg gave the following message:

Name may not start with a digit

if gnupg can easily import and use keys that are already named this way,

but won't let it be generated this way,
then is there a potential problem to watch out for, with any other gnupg
functions in using a key already named with a digit at the beginning?
