Hi, Aaron.  You might be interested in some of the tools that come with
the Monkeysphere [0] package, which deals with a lot of OpenPGP for SSH
stuff.  It comes with the utility openpgp2ssh, which translates OpenPGP
keys to SSH keys (and is well documented).  From openpgp2ssh(1):

     openpgp2ssh < mykey.gpg
     gpg --export $KEYID | openpgp2ssh $KEYID
     gpg --export-secret-key $KEYID | openpgp2ssh $KEYID

Monkeysphere also has a command to import an authentication-capable
OpengPGP subkey directly into an ssh-agent:

$ monkeysphere subkey-to-ssh-agent

It's available in Debian, Ubuntu, and some other distros [1].
