Unfortunately LogLevel VERBOSE logs the fingerprint of the private key,
not the public key.  If we don't have the private key that is being
abused, we still don't know which key is being abused.

LogLevel DEBUG prints which line the public key is on, but not the
fingerprint of the public key itself.  If the order of this file is
changed, we still wouldn't know which key to remove from the server.

The actual solution would be logging the fingerprint of the PUBLIC key.
 Then if the private key is abused, we can revoke the corresponding
public key in the "authorized_keys" file.
