Is now a good time for other clean up?

public_exponent -> exponent?

add PrivateKey class?

obvious use case, your protected private key on your local device is
to be used by a robot to perform tasks for you

there's also a nice feature with most private keys that they are
protected by a passphrase ... on the GPG mail list this week, someone
offered to post his private key in the new york times, he was that
confident of the strength of his passphrase! :)
