Thanks a lot for your input, everyone.
Lots of information !

After giving it a look, it seams reasonable to use it.
But i'm not confident enough to add another *semi* blackbox tool
in my key backup scheme, as i'll depend of its possible future
evolutions and incompatibility. Moreover, i _think_ that spending time
(even an hour if necessary) typing ALL the relevant data is well worth it
if you can get your key back. Simple things are usually the best !

Yeah, now i own one *grin*
