Allow creation of subkeys with specific capabilities and honor RSA sign only key

Reported by steve | December 20th, 2012 @ 05:42 PM | in 1.2b1 (closed)

GPG Keychain Access should allow to create subkeys with only specific capabilities.

Also, if a RSA (sign only) should be created, all other capabilities besides signing should be disabled.

allow proper creation of RSA "sign only" secret key! the best practice is to have a master key that has capabilities "sc" only (sign & cert), and then a separate subkey for encryption. Even though I specify "RSA (sign only)" when creating a new key, it adds encryption to the master key anyway
