If keys are found in clipboard the user should be prompted if they want to import them

Reported by Helmut K. C. Tessarek | December 9th, 2014 @ 07:19 PM | in 1.3 (closed)

Currently it's possible to import keys from clipboard in GPG Keychain by activating the application and pressing CMD + V
However almost no one knows of this feature, since there's no indication it exists.
To improve that, GPG Keychain should prompt the user and ask them if they want to import keys from their clipboard, if keys are available in the clipboard.

To further enhance it, it would make sense to check if the key was already imported, and if it was, not prompt the user again.
(Might not always be good, if it's an updated key...)
