It would result in a hacked solution...

I am aware of this form but it

 (a) limits each key to only be usable to update one domain
 (b) forces me to do administration in the authorized_keys file, which

because of naming and administrative issues...

Damnit, this is harder than I want it to be.

Please do not CC me! Mutt (www.mutt.org) can handle this automatically.
