Similar to Wouter's suggestions --show is not specific enough and does
not explain that this is to show the keys and not messages.

Unless we want to continue the current and mostly debugish output of
whatever gpg shows without commands, this requires that the type of the
input is first detected.  In GPGME we have code to do this which could
be lifted for use in gpg.  With that --show would make sense.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
