Because clarifying the docs is "non-invasive". If you change the way gpg parses
its options, you risk breaking scripts people wrote and such. Plus, there is a
good chance the parsing was deliberately designed the way it is :). So rather
than challenge the design, I chose clarifying it instead. You could say I chose
the lazy way (of least resistance).
I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
