In fact I'm questioning the point.


If you are using subkeys, you just have to specify the subkey id.
Then you can add as many subkeys you want, pass will still be using the
specified one. It is also usefull to give sort of access permissions on
some pc that have or not have some subkeys.

I don't really see the point on giving pass the mind behind the subkey

It is strongly probable that I'm missing something. I'm sorry if this is
the case.
