RFC 4819 was interesting to read, especially section 4.  Has it been
implemented anywhere?

Would the correct way to read and manipulate authorized_keys files use
authfile.c ?  Even though the file format is a little weird, and too
much for awk, it can be processed rather easily in perl, and ssh-copy-id
is shell.
