Thanks, I'll try that one. (Weird that I didn't find it. Huh...)

Yeah, getting copies of your private keys on untrusted pcs (and entering
the passphrase there) is a Bad Idea. I'll probably make a zipped "blank
package", with TB/Enigmail/Gnupg installed but without keys or anything,
to show keygen, importing etc. So I could extract the prepared package,
show my stuff and then just delete the whole thing and start from from
the fresh package on the next computer. (Although, ideally, people would
say "Wow, that's awesome!" and just keep using the programs. ^_^ )
