But now again you have the issue of key management.  It's easy today to 
handle user/pass management with centralized TACACS/RADIUS, but if you 
don't have the existing structure to automate adding/deleting trusted 
keys from each router you are managing, it loses some luster.

Would be nice if they supported LDAP queries of public keys.
