If *you* want to see the fingerprint, that's fine. If you want to
write a *program* that needs the fingerprint, then --with-colons is
pretty much mandatory, since it avoids all the issues of changing
messages, localized messages, weird characters that might be mistaken
for parts of messages, etc.
Of course, for writing programs that interface with GnuPG, it's best
to go all the way and use GPGME, but for some simple tasks the output
of --with-colons is exactly right.
I didn't know about --fixed-list-mode; thanks!

If wishes were fishes, the antecedent of this conditional would be true.
