That the usual of gpg not able to merge secret keys.

Yes. I used to do something similar.

Give 2.1.0-beta a try; it makes the secret key management much easier.
Despite that 2.1 has warnings about being a beta versions, I am using it
for about 4 years now.
But take care, the latest beta has a problem exporting secret ECC keys.
But ECC keys are not very common anway. I introduced that bug in the
last beta without noticing. I'll fix next week.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
