it is not :)

as i wrote in my previous email. you are confusing RSA with DSA
keys.  README.openssh2 talks about SSH2 only. It talks about
converting's DSA keys to OpenSSH DSA keys, see ssh-keygen(1).

you cannot convert authorized_keys to authorized_keys2, but you can
convert .ssh2/ to a format that complies to the
authorized_keys2 syntax. sorry for the confusion, README.openssh2
will be removed soon.
