Outside email encryption, where I don't need to remember the epa-*
prefix, I use epa-list-keys and occasionnally epa-import-keys.

When I forget about the prefix, I use the GUI gpa tool instead.

To help those who don't use the menu bar, I'd say.

Actually, gpg-* would be the best prefix for me.

If I tell a friend "You can list your keys from Emacs", that's what
he will certainly try first.  Not epa-list-keys, which is not even
available from a menu.
