server and append them to the current user's authorized_keys  file  (or

       This  utility will securely contact a public keyserver and retrieve one
       or more user's public keys, and append  these  to  the  current  user's
       ~/.ssh/authorized_keys  file,  standard  output  or any other specified
       output file.

       User IDs can be prepended by a protocol:

        - lp: to use
        - gh: to use

       If the protocol is not explicitly specified,  then  ssh-import-id  will
       read  a URL variable string from /etc/ssh/ssh_import_id as installed by
       your package manager and configured by your system administrator.   You
       can  override  this  locally  by exporting the string you want in a URL
       environment variable.  If all of these are empty, then the protocol  is
       assumed  to  be  "lp:", which was the original target implementation of
       this tool.

       Any keys added will be "labled" with a trailing comment, "# ssh-import-
       id  PROTO:USER_ID".   Revoking  keys  will  first look for lines in the
       authorized keys file ending with that label.
