Could someone point me to documentation describing the architecture of a
key pair, and what gets used for what? Specifically, the role of sub-keys.
$ gpg --list-keys chd

Someone sent me a message encrypted with E0BEF64A instead of 379E6244, and
I realize that I don't fully understand the differences and functions of
these key parts...
