I'm using gpg to encrypt some secret content using a dedicated passphrase-protected keypair that will never be published.

So it will also never benefit from the revocation certificate that commands like gpg --quick-generate-key will create. In an effort to keep things simpler for the audience of this tooling, I would prefer to simply not create the file, rather than carry it around or delete it afterwards.

Is there a way to prevent gpg from creating the revocation certificate? Perhaps with an extra option, a config file line or an alternative to --quick-generate-key?

GnuPG 2.2.24
