I thought about doing something like this too, but I thought about it
from the perspective of panel applet that would manage an ssh-agent for
you, plus a control center applet for adding/removing keys and copying
them to remote servers, displaying them in a editable widget. I can't
think why you would want to e-mail them though :) (?)

How about a control center applet (Applications->Desktop
Preferences->Advanced->SSH keys)? This wouldn't be too confusing would

I'm still a gnome-terminal user (as will many people be to begin with
unless gnome-remote-shell replaces it in some way). If the key editing
stuff was all locked in gnome-remote-shell, I wouldn't be able to make
use of it (would I?). Somewhere a bit more 'neutral' than
gnome-remote-shell (but still within gnome-network) probably might be
better for this stuff.

Just my humble opinions. Do your own thing, by all means ;)
