It has no function there.  It is used as an option for --list-keys.
Import simply imports the key and does only a few basic checks.  It is
in particular not useful to do a key signatures check during import
because at the point you may not yet have imported the keys used to
create the key signature.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
