In 2.1 the secret keys are manage by gpg-agent and in theory gpg should
not care about them.  However, we also have import and export commands
which tell the agent what to do with the secret keys (i.e. import or
export).  A delete command is a bit more difficult regarding the UI
because it is possible that gpgme uses the same secret key for an X.509
certificate - it would then also be silently deleted.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
