I believe it's actually exactly the same format that ssh uses by
default... but maybe different headers or something?  (It has some
official name too, some complicated acronym...)

It's not...or at least I'm pretty sure it's not. When I was writing
the code I tried my hardest to find the format that ssh-keygen used
and got stumped....or at least I got stumped when trying to convert it
into Botan terms/options. I then started looking through the formats
that Botan offered and found one that worked with ssh-agent. :-/
