No, this is on purpose.  -k is still a kludge to be commandline
compatible to PGG 2.  The semantics of -k and --list-keys are slighlty
different and we want to fade out the use of the PGP 2 compatibility
mode.  Eventually -k will be an alias for --list-kyes.  BTW, there is
already the lias -K for --list-secret-keys.
