Yes, that would be very useful! With that, I could convert my OpenSSH
key to SECSH format using ssh-keygen, and then use it to debug the
remaining part of libssh2 for the libgcrypt port. PEM file reading is
boring to write, so I'd like to procrastinate on that for a while.

Is there a standard on what the SECSH filenames are? Is it wise to
have the libssh2 public-key-file reader support both formats in the
same file? I wonder why OpenSSH doesn't support the SECSH format in
