You might want to rethink your design. You probably want just the RSA or
DSA public key to be unique. Otherwise you will treat different versions of
what is essentially the same key as being different. (This might be due
to be signed by a different set of keys.) I suspect that this isn't what
you want. I think even the craziest people are using keys that should
be around 1000 bytes. Paranoid people (or those needing very long lived
public keys) are using ones half that size.
