Alas, I didn't create that particular capability to access the secret
of life... I just happened upon it one day... and as such, I don't
have access to the cryptographic material for that did:key either. :P

Luckily for all of us, I hear that quantum computers are going to
break the cryptography underlying that did:key "real soon now"(tm) ...
so, all we have to do is just wait around a bit longer to find out. :)
