T3788: Document how to "exchange the private key"

It makes --export-secret-key-p12 the recommended way to transport a privat CMS key. (fine, if this is, what was intended).
(Note that there is a typo in line 259).

/doc/gpgsm.texi
259

The in at the end of the line is superfluous now.

@werner sorry for asking again, I may be missing something: just saw that you've marked my comment for line 259 as "done". But in master and gnupg-2.2.5 I still see the sentence as
Export the private key and the certificate identified by @var{key-id} in using the PKCS#12 format. which does not pass my English parser. :)

It was fixed with commit 641aae78 _after_ 2.2.5. Will eventually be merged into master.
