Which only works with specific GPG versions; don't rely on that.  The
proper way to do this is a status-fd/command-fd driver handler.  Or
someone spends some time to extend the batch key generation to select an
existing key and to only add subkey.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
