Paperkey for Revocation Certificates? (Feature-Request :-)

Although David's awesome little tool [1] reduces the chance of losing a
secret key, I am still a fan for pre-generated revocation certificates
in case a key is irrecoverably lost.

David, is there a chance that you will extend paperkey so that it
encodes and decodes revocation certificates? Adding a line-wise CRC to
those seems particularly sensible to me as they would be printed to
paper even more often than keys. I am unsure as to how much they could
be shortened, though.

And, btw, is there a significant difference between 0.7 that ships with
Ubuntu and 0.8 on

cu, Sven
