--- Comment #4 from Damien Miller <djm at mindrot.org> ---
That's not really possible without modifying the agent protocol - it
only supports a single key comment. We substitute the key's path if we
don't get one from the key, but displaying both comment from the key
and path would require either 1) we change the protocol or 2) we munge
the key comment to include both.

I consider #1 too little benefit for a costly (and slow to deploy)
change. #2 is pretty ugly and breaks the transparency of ssh-keygen.
