Thanks for such a good MacOS gui for GPG key management - very appreciated.

I was looking today at using GPG sub-key for ssh-agent authentication and noticed in the GUI that "authenticate" is not an available option. I can do this in the command line but since "encryption" and "signing" are already available that "authenticate" could be added as a GUI option.

Thank you.
