Er, p and q (the RSA primes) are most certainly NOT part of the public 
key.  However, once you've calculated n and e from them, the extra 
values are only useful for performance reasons (key agility, for instance).

Interesting that OpenSSL private keys are much more verbose than they 
need to be.
