That is not correct.  All version support import of secret keys.  What
versions < 2.1 don't allow is merging (updating) a secret key.  This can
be problematic in some cases but most of the time it is sufficient to
delete the secret key first and then import the other version of the
secret key.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
