And? You have that already, just add that in front of your key as you
would normally do. ud-ldap passes it. It really "only" needs the
"host=gluck,merkel,whatever" addition to also limit it to target hosts
and then all is there.

Basically the only technical restriction keys have to pass is that
ssh-keygen -l -f $tmpfile has to be able to parse the lines. And it can
parse those options fine.
