gpg: default to 3072-bit RSA keys.

* agent/command.c (hlp_genkey): update help text to suggest the use of
3072 bits.
* doc/wks.texi: Make example match default generation.
* g10/keygen.c (DEFAULT_STD_KEY_PARAM): update to
rsa3072/cert,sign+rsa3072/encr, and fix neighboring comment,
(gen_rsa, get_keysize_range): update default from 2048 to 3072).
* g10/keyid.c (pubkey_string): update comment so that first example
is the default 3072-bit RSA.

--

3072-bit RSA is widely considered to be 128-bit-equivalent security.
This is a sensible default in 2017.
