Manages keys

We use the term "key" to refer to OpenPGP keys that do contain secrets. This subcommand provides primitives to generate and otherwise manipulate keys.

Conversely, we use the term "certificate", or cert for short, to refer to OpenPGP keys that do not contain secrets. See "sq keyring" for operations on certificates.
