It's not unlikely, because people may want to keep cert files named or symlinked by keyid. (For example, local cert database keep cert files symlinked like `f30dd6ad.0'.) I will add an option, most understandable, perhaps, is `--keyid-from-cert'. Also, I will remove base 16 from --keyid argument. Thanks, > > thanks, > > Mimi
