Did you notice the

WARNING: This script is deprecated; please use gpgsm --gen-key instead.

the scripts print sicne version 2.0.13 ;-)

While it is provided, please make it work. The patch is trivial.

No. The script has only not removed to not break existsing packaging systems
and to notify the user that a better tool is available.

Based on that, you should remove all code from script and replace it with a
message instructing to use the other tool. I do not understand how providing
non-workable code has any value.

I do not want to reopen this... but it is odd. Feel free to ignore.
