==== Description: ====
Ever used ssh keys?  Ever thought that they were REALLY cool, but a pain to
maintain across multiple hosts?

Enter Key Manager.  Key Manager is designed to allow distributed access to
various hosts/user pairs to arbitrary groups.  

For example, you have 20 hosts, all running GNU/Linux varients, 10 web
servers and 10 database boxes.  You could then create 3 groups: one which gave
access to root to all 20 boxes, one which gave postgres user access to the 10
database boxes, and 10 that gave webmaster access to the 10 web boxes.

The bulk of Key Manager is written in python (I'm using v2.3.4, but I suspect
it would run as far back as v2.2 or earlier), and relies on a slightly
modified pexpect and pxssh modules.

There are some helper scripts written in BASH to help users of the system as

All access to remote systems is done via ssh.

==== Other Software Required: ====
pexpect python module
pxssh python module
