I used the (Windows) program scallion, from GitHub, with the following
parameters: scallion --gpg -k 2048 02022020
That's all and it took less than five seconds to generate the private key. :-)
That way you can also create keys with your birthday or deadbeef etc.
After key generation you have to import the private key into GnuPG
with '--allow-non-selfsigned-uid' to add a proper UID and passphrase.
