The format of the blob which is sent over the wire is fixed and well
defined. It's basicly the base64 decode version of the meaningful
portion of either file (hence my earlier example using the same base64
sequence in both versions).

Again though, this is just the public key format we're talking about, it
doesn't address private keys at all, and without a private key, the
public key is useless.
