There is no feature for it. You may use gpgsplit to manually construct
a key from such a backup. You need to take the keybinding signature etc
from the matching public key. I have not tried, it though. If you look
on the backup file using "gpg --list-packets" wyou will see that it is a
standard secret key packets - but just that packet without any
self-signatures or user-ids.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
