One our user ran into problem with missing trailing newline characters
in public key file when copying to remote server [1]. Everyone knows
that every text file should end with newline character, but tools
should handle both as ssh, sshd and other tools do.

I know that this is not major issue and you are working on more
important stuff, but this can help usability and avoid confusion if
there are some old or malformed keys.
