Use key fingerprint as ID instead of “long” ID. #452

@Natureshadow Natureshadow commented Apr 16, 2019

It is generally assumed that for applications demanding good security, the full key fingerprint should be used instead of just the 64-bit or, let alone, 32-bit key ID.

This PR uses the key fingerprint from GPG to replace the key ID. It works by waiting for an fpr record in the key list and, if it looks like belonging to the key at hand by comparing the end of the fingerprint to the previously found ID, replacing the key_id field with it (it should normally be the next line after the pub or sec record).

As a bonus, this increases compatibility with other frontends, like gopass-pw, which use the fingerprint and would cause unwanted updates of .gpg-id.
