fwiw, monkeysphere doesn't explicitly support exporting OpenPGP secret
key material to arbitrary formats.

Rather, modern versions of monkeysphere (the ones that support gpg 2.1)
include agent-transfer, a tool that knows how to export secret key
material from a running gpg-agent and import into a running ssh agent.

See the agent-transfer(1) manual page for more details.
