I've just completed two new commands:

  make-server-keys -- takes a list of server names from a CSV file,
creates new keys for them

  make-server-delegations -- takes a CSV file with XS name, XO sn, XO
uuid, delegation expiry, the key to delegate, and a dir with the
server keys. Mix it all, bake at 200C and you'll find a directory with
one delegations file per server.

That file has a format derived from our other sig files -- prepending
SN and UUID so the XS has the info it needs to create the delegated

As usual, on the XS
