You better use a temporary directory.  This is far easier than to play
with all the options and it allows you to use gpgme.

Another option is to import the key and then delete it if you don't want
it.  However, we have a --merge-only option but not a --only-new-key-option.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
