Description Tim Waugh 2001-04-20 09:43:31 UTC
Neither the man-page nor the output of --help mentions 
--allow-secret-key-import, although the error output when trying to 
import a secret key without that option does mention it.

At first I thought this was an error in our original backport of the fix to this
bug, but it appears to be an intended omission.  From the NEWS file in 1.0.5:
    * Secret keys are no longer imported unless you use the new option
      --allow-secret-key-import.  This is a kludge and future versions will
      handle it in another way.
