Ah, sorry, my bad. I misremembered the code and wrote nonsense.

What's being encoded in those 6 characters is the type of the key (ECDSA
or EdDSA, currently), as the entire GNUNET_IDENTITY_PublicKey structure
is encoded through the *_to_data function from the strings GNUnet
library and its first field is a uint32_t.

Sorry for the confusion,
