For the records, GnuPG never supported keys larger than keys you can
create with GnuPG, which is for RSA 4096 bit.  Largers keys may or may
not work.



p.s. A 16k key is actually the worst thing one can do and actually
decreases overall security.

Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
